Michem® Wood Release 5040C

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.

This release agent is used during the manufacture of pMDI based particleboard, oriented strand board, medium density fiberboard and other types of engineered wood. It provides a low coefficient of friction coating creating release of the wood fiber from the press plate resulting in a lighter color board with reduced build up. It provides ‘memory’ ensuring worry free release even if you experience a spray application failure.
