Licomer® W 483

(Nonionic montan emulsion)

This high gloss concentrated emulsion, is used for dry-bright polishes.

Emulsion 29.0 - 31.0 Nonionic                        

Michem® Dispersion 91530

(Acrylic resin dispersion)

An additive best used as a leveling aid, gloss enhancer and for buffability and mar resistance for the floor finish industry. It is also effective for gloss enhancement for auto polish formulas.

Specialty Dispersion 29.0 - 31.0                        

Michem® Emulsion 24414

(Anionic carnauba wax emulsion)

This additive for polish formulations provides buffability, gloss enhancement and mar resistance with an exceptionally small particle size.

Emulsion 13.5 - 14.5 Anionic                    

Michem® Emulsion 91735

(Nonionic polypropylene emulsion)

A sizing polymer for fiberglass and other fibers used to reinforce polypropylene. It can also be used in paint & varnish and polish applications to impart durability, mar, slip and block resistance.

Emulsion 34.0 - 36.0 Anionic / Nonionic                        

Michem® Emulsion 93235

(Nonionic polyethylene emulsion)

This phenol free additive is best used in water based coatings where improved slip, rub resistance, hardness and/or block resistance is needed. It has proven very effective for mar resistance in floor polish formulations as well as mar resistance and shine in car polish formulations.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Nonionic                        

Michem® Emulsion 93935

(Nonionic polyethylene emulsion)

A phenol and formaldehyde free wax emulsion used in floor polish formulations where it imparts black heel resistance, toughness and buffability and mar and scuff resistance. It is also useful in paint and varnish formulations to impart durability, block, mar and scratch resistance.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Nonionic                    

Michem® Emulsion 95535

(APEO free, nonionic, high density polyethylene emulsion)

A phenol free additive best used in water based coatings where improved slip, rub resistance, hardness and/or block resistance is needed. It has proven to be very effective for mar resistance in floor polish formulations as well as mar resistance and shine in car polish formulations.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Nonionic                    

Michem® Lube 156 PFP

(Nonionic carnauba wax emulsion)

Used as an additive in polish (specifically car polish), cosmetics, paints, coatings and graphic arts to increase scratch resistance, lubrication, release and anti-block properties. It can also be used in coatings for OPP films.

Emulsion 24.5 - 25.5 Nonionic        

Michem® Lube 160 PFP

(Anionic carnauba wax emulsion)

This phenol-free additive provides slip and anti-block properties when used in coatings for seeds, metal, wood and OPP films.

Emulsion 24.5 - 25.5 Anionic              

Michem® Lube 182

(Anionic carnauba/paraffin wax emulsion)

Provides slip, release and anti-block properties in a number of applications ranging from wood coatings to being blended with synthetic and natural lattices. It is also a mar and scratch resistant and water repellent additive in varnishes and other coatings. This product is slightly higher in melt point than Michem® Lube 180.

Emulsion 24.5 - 25.5 Anionic                        

Michem® Lube 270R

(Anionic paraffin/polyethylene wax coemulsion)

Provides excellent water and block resistance in paint and coating formulations. This product is useful for long term water bead and for water repellency on wood as well as a tire dressing and buffability for auto care.

Emulsion 38.5 - 39.5 Anionic                      

Wax Dispersion 40

(Solvent dispersion of paraffin wax)

Most effective as a water repellent aid, this dispersion also has some slip and release properties in solvent applications. It is most effective when used in formulations for deck, architectural and industrial coatings.

Solvent Dispersion 39.5 - 40.5
