Michem® Wood Release 2240

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.

Designed for use as an internal release agent for the manufacture of pMDI pressed engineered wood products. It is applied upstream prior to the addition of resin providing excellent release at a low application rate and easy removal of build-up if occurring over time. It provides the added benefit of aiding cleanliness in the blow line and drier tube resulting in reduced downtime. Michelman internal application equipment is available for trialing.
