Michem® Emulsion 19815

(Modified polypropylene wax emulsion)

Provides good scratch resistance and anti-slip properties for concrete applications.

Emulsion 14.5 - 15.5 Anionic / Nonionic                

Michem® Emulsion 34935

(Anionic paraffin/copolymer blend)

Provides excellent water beading and is primarily used for water resistance in wood coatings.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Anionic                  

Michem® Emulsion 47950

(Nonionic paraffin emulsion)

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.

Emulsion 49.0 - 51.0 Nonionic              

Michem® Emulsion 62330

(Anionic paraffin/polyethylene coemulsion)

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.

Emulsion 29.5 - 30.5 Anionic                

Michem® Emulsion 66035

(Anionic paraffin/polyethylene wax coemulsion)

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.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Anionic            

Michem® Emulsion 70750

(Anionic scale wax emulsion)

Imparts excellent early water resistance and release properties when used as an additive in wood coatings, furniture coatings and other water based coatings when additional water resistant properties are needed.

Emulsion 48.0 - 52.0 Anionic            

Michem® Emulsion 71150

(Anionic scale wax emulsion)

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.

Emulsion 50 - 51 Anionic                  

Michem® Lube 190

(Anionic polyethylene wax emulsion)

Provides mar, rub, block and scratch resistance as well as improved water resistance in coatings and graphic arts formulations.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Anionic                  

Michem® Lube 743P

(Nonionic paraffin wax emulsion)

Michem® Lube 743P exhibits a high degree of water resistance and is used in many water based coating applications to increase water resistance and/or surface slip.

Emulsion 31.5 - 32.5 Nonionic                

NatureShield® 30

(Anionic tung oil emulsion)

Containing 99.5% natural ingredients, this additive imparts good water bead to wood and concrete coatings.

Emulsion 29.5 - 30.5 Anionic
