Michelman technologies offer optimum protection, durability, and surface qualities in a wide array of architectural and special purpose coatings.
Our emphasis is on weather resistant polymers for exterior façade paint; polymers for very low VOC interior paints with scrub resistance; and a complete line of performance-enhancing aqueous surface modifiers.
For maximum formulation flexibility, our extensive line of Michem surface additives, NatureShield® natural oil emulsions and Michelman polymers add specific attributes to water-based protective and cure and seal formulations.
Our polymers and additives help extend the maintenance cycle of low VOC water-based clear wood finishes and stains designed for exterior wood decking and siding. Added to wood finish formulations, Michem® Wood Coating products penetrate and protect wood against water swelling while polymers add toughness and longer service life.
