Michem® Release Agent 9004

Brand Family Overview

VaporCoat® recyclable water-based coatings confer high barrier to paper-based packaging and wraps. Most VaporCoat grades are designed for “low MVTR”, to retard water vapor transmission in order to keep perishables fresh, frozen goods intact, or sensitive contents in factory condition. In response to market interest for greater food safety and preservation, additional VaporCoat products can inhibit contaminants ordinarily found in recycled paper from migrating into packaged dry food.

A platen coating that acts as a metal sealer. It imparts a low COF to seal the surface of the platen, produces a cleaner surface, and reduces the frequency of cleanings. It also provides a smoother board surface over time, requiring less sanding.
