ACqua™ 240

(Ethylene acrylic acid copolymer)

Provides corrosion resistance and metal adhesion for can and coil, die lubes and industrial maintenance applications and is removable with alkaline cleaners.

Emulsion 19.0 - 21.0 Anionic                    

Michem® Dispersion 91530

(Acrylic resin dispersion)

An additive best used as a leveling aid, gloss enhancer and for buffability and mar resistance for the floor finish industry. It is also effective for gloss enhancement for auto polish formulas.

Specialty Dispersion 29.0 - 31.0                    

Michem® Emulsion 44730

(Nonionic ethylene acrylic acid copolymer)

This formalin and APE free additive provides anti-slip and black heel mark resistance for floor polish applications. It also provides abrasion resistance for seed coatings as well as lubricity for seed coatings and die lubes.

Emulsion 29.5 - 30.5 Nonionic                    

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® 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                    

ProHere® E 00002

(Polyolefin-acrylic hybrid dispersion)

Designed for formulating anti-corrosion primers and pre-treatment sealers for metallic substrates to provide excellent adhesion to various metallic substrates like steel, electroplated steel and aluminum. In addition, it provides excellent water resistance and chemical resistance to acids and many solvents.

Specialty Dispersion 20.0 - 22.0 Ammoniated / alkali dispersion                    

ProHere® L 90001

(Paraffin/polyethylene emulsion)

Imparts lubricity and contributes to water resistance to metal coatings without affecting gloss.

Emulsion 29.5 - 30.5 Anionic                    

ProHere® L 90010

(Nonionic polyethylene emulsion)

A phenol and formaldehyde free emulsion for metal coatings which imparts abrasion resistance, scratch resistance, enhanced lubricity, and torque/tension control.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Nonionic                  

ProHere® L 90900

(Anionic carnauba wax emulsion)

Imparts lubricity to metal coatings and presents food contact compliance.

Emulsion 24.5 - 25.5 Anionic
