Shamrock Presents NanoFLON AquaFLON
Initial testing by Newark, N.J.-based Shamrock Technologies Inc. of its NanoFLON and AquaFLON
polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) additives is complete, and the products now are commercially
available. Shamrock says both products are suitable for use in performance wear and outdoor
fabrics.NanoFLON is designed for melt spinning applications, while AquaFLON is intended for wet
processing uses. Attributes imparted to yarns and fabrics by the addition of PTFE include reduced
frictional properties and excellent moisture movement ability, according to the company, which also
is evaluating other possible benefits.
