ProHere®, Michem®, and other specialty brand solutions for factory-applied and field-applied protective coatings on metal, concrete, wood or plastic.
The addition of a Michelman emulsion or dispersion enhances the processing and performance of a wide range of metal products by improving mar and scratch resistance, mobility, slip/lubricity and corrosion resistance. Many of our products are waterborne and achieve these goals without solvents.
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.
Mold release agents and sprays are designed specifically for use with all types of rubber, plastic, composites, wood fiber composites/panel pressing, concrete, stone veneers, and polyurethane parts to allow easy and clean release. A wide variety of wax types are used in die lubricants and mold releases for plastics, metals, and concrete, where high-temperature lubricity is required.
ProHere® polymers and surface modifiers for waterborne metal coatings enhance lubricity; torque, tension and noise control; as well as appearance, haptics, durability, and anti-scratching of the finish.
Michelman wax emulsions improve the in-plant handling and service life of natural and synthetic rubber gloves.
Michelman offers a broad range of Michem® surface modifier additives to enhance the performance properties of water-based coatings for leather.
Selected Michelman waterborne polymers and additives are ideally suited for direct-to-metal primer and coating formulations, offering a range of functional properties.
Michelman's range of polymers allows formulators to develop factory-applied wood coatings for a broad range of end-use applications. Typical applications include cabinetry and furniture, parquet flooring, wood doors, and window frames. Various surface modifier additives enhance many formulations' surface appearance, haptics, and durability.
Michelman's range of polymers allows formulators to develop wood coatings for in-field use for a broad range of applications, including parquet flooring, wood doors, and window frames. Various surface modifier additives enhance many formulations' surface appearance, haptics, and durability for contractor and do-it-yourself (DIY) applied solutions.
Selected Michelman water-based binders are ideally suited for textile coating formulations. Generally used as topcoats, they offer functional properties such as good abrasion and water-resistance.
