Michem® Flex HS 268
Brand Family Overview
Michem® Lube is a versatile family of nanoscale wax emulsions, mostly carnauba and paraffin-based, used to improve processing and performance in many industries, as well as provide a wide array of surface properties.See more Michem Lube products.
Used for heat sealing or dry bond lamination applications, offering low temperature seal initiation and stronger bonds to paper, metal (foil or metalized surface), various primed films such as matt, pearlized cavitated BOPP or BOPET films. It should be used with the addition of a wax emulsion to control the coefficient of friction (typically 2 to 4% by weight) e.g. Michem® Lube 160 RPH.
Water based dispersion of high molecular weight polyolefin
