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.
Improves water resistance, mar resistance and anti-block properties in paints and coatings.
Effective as a sacrificial anti-graffiti coating and can also contribute water and corrosion resistance to industrial and wood coatings. This product also provides lubricity and serves as a mold release for industrial molding applications.
Provides excellent anti-blocking and release properties for building paint, industrial molding and industrial wood applications.
This fine particle sized emulsion provides excellent water repellency, corrosion resistance, block resistance and lubricity when added to varnishes and other coatings, without affecting gloss.
An excellent waterbeading agent for exterior coatings providing early water beading and anti-blocking properties as well. It also is successfully used for hot tire scuff resistance in asphalt.
A stable high solids water resistant additive for coatings. It is also effective in controlling concrete curing and providing donnability and release for industrial molding applications.
Provides excellent water resistance in paint and varnish applications.
Provides excellent anti-blocking, scratch and mar resistance as well as gloss in inks, coatings and overprint varnishes .
This phenol free additive is best used in water based coatings where improved slip, rub resistance, hardness and/or block resistance is needed. It has proven very effective for mar resistance in floor polish formulations as well as mar resistance and shine in car polish formulations.
Enhances anti-blocking, slip properties and mar resistance and is used most effectively for wood coatings,inks and overprint varnishes.
A phenol and formaldehyde free wax emulsion used in floor polish formulations where it imparts black heel resistance, toughness and buffability and mar and scuff resistance. It is also useful in paint and varnish formulations to impart durability, block, mar and scratch resistance.
A phenol free additive best used in floor polish and overprint varnish formulations when a high degree of slip resistance is needed. It also provides durability and scratch resistance to wood applications.
Used to provide superior slip, abrasion resistance and antiblock properties in paint, varnish, and wood applications.
Designed to impart rub resistance, block resistance and matting properties to aqueous paints, coatings and inks.
A water-based, dispersion which improves blocking, rub and abrasion resistance, and matting in pigmented coatings and semi-gloss coatings, inks, and overprint varnishes and at very low addition rates. It also produces smooth satin finishes at 5-10% addition rates.
This phenol-free additive provides slip and anti-block properties when used in coatings for seeds, metal, wood and OPP films.
Provides slip, release and anti-block properties in a number of applications ranging from wood coatings to being blended with synthetic and natural lattices. It is also a mar and scratch resistant and water repellent additive in varnishes and other coatings. This product is slightly higher in melt point than Michem® Lube 180.
Provides mar, rub, block and scratch resistance as well as improved water resistance in coatings and graphic arts formulations.
Provides excellent water and block resistance in paint and coating formulations. This product is useful for long term water bead and for water repellency on wood as well as a tire dressing and buffability for auto care.
Provides excellent water beading, water repellence, release and anti-block for seed coatings, wood and architectural coatings.
Enhances water repellency, water beading, and moisture/moisture vapor resistance. This product is widely used in the wood coatings industries.
Provides excellent water repellancy and block resistance when used in the paint and coatings industry.
Exhibiting a high degree of water, block and mar resistance, and excellent compatibility, this product is used in many water based coating applications.
Exhibiting a high degree of water resistance and block resistance this product is used in many water based coating applications.
Michem® Lube 985 can provide slip, release and anti-blocking properties in a number of applications from wood coatings to being blended with synthetic and natural lattices.
Penetrating deep into wood substrates this user-friendly, water resistant topical wood treatment provides good water beading and swell resistance with lower VOC for exterior wood decks, fences, and garden sheds. Michem® Wood coating 44 produces a natural surface appearance and is particularly suitable for softwood as well as extending the look and use of outdoor wood furniture.
Provides excellent water resistance for topical wood coatings. This product works to prevent the swelling of wood in the presence of water as well as providing great water bead.
A high solids, water resistant topical wood treatment for exterior wood and wood composites. Michem® Wood Coating 70LV provides good water bead and swell resistance with lower VOC.
Reduces water uptake, offers great water bead with lower VOC, and provides outstanding re-coatability for improved wet out in topical wood coatings. This product also provides excellent water resistance and swell resistance to help control cracking, warping, and splintering in exterior wood applications such as wood decks and fences.
Containing 99.5% natural ingredients, this additive imparts good water bead to wood and concrete coatings.
Most effective as a water repellent aid, this dispersion also has some slip and release properties in solvent applications. It is most effective when used in formulations for deck, architectural and industrial coatings.
