Michelman offers a broad range of Michem® surface modifier additives to enhance the performance properties of water-based coatings for leather.
An additive that provides release and water resistance in specialty coated films and papers. An effective tactile modifier for interior automotive coatings, it can help give synthetic materials a leather feel.
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.
A sizing polymer for fiberglass and other fibers used to reinforce polypropylene. It can also be used in paint & varnish and polish applications to impart durability, mar, slip and block resistance.
A phenol-free additive best used in water-based coatings where improved slip, rub resistance, hardness, or block resistance is needed. It provides effective mar resistance in floor polish formulations, and shine and mar resistance in auto polish formulations.
This phenol and formaldehyde-free additive imparts black heel resistance, toughness, buffability, and mar and scuff resistance for floor polish formulations. It also imparts durability, block, mar and scratch resistance in paint and varnish formulations.
A phenol free additive best used in water based coatings where improved slip, rub resistance, hardness and/or block resistance is needed. It has proven to be very effective for mar resistance in floor polish formulations as well as mar resistance and shine in car polish formulations.
This water-based dispersion provides block, rub, and abrasion resistance, and matting in pigmented and semi-gloss coatings, inks, and overprint varnishes. It also produces smooth satin finishes at a 5-10% addition rate.
Provides scratch resistance, lubricity, release, and anti-block properties in auto polishes, cosmetics, paints, coatings, and graphic arts.
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-blocking properties in a number of applications from wood coatings to synthetic and natural lattices. It also provides mar and scratch resistance and water repellence in varnishes and other coatings.
This wax emulsion provides slip, release, and anti-block properties in wood coatings and other applications and may be blended with synthetic and natural lattices. It also provides mar and scratch resistance and water repellency in varnishes and other coatings.
Provides mar, rub, block, and scratch resistance, and 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.
Exhibiting a high degree of water resistance and block resistance this product is used in many water based coating applications.
Provides outstanding adhesion to both metallic and cellulosic substrates, and enhances the corrosion, water, grease, oil and solvent resistance of coatings and adhesives.
Provides outstanding adhesion to metallic and cellulosic substrates and enhances the water, grease, oil and solvent resistance of coatings and adhesives and is a high solids, more economical version of Michem® Prime 4983R. . The adhesion properties of Michem® Prime facilitate its use as a primer for extrusion coatings. Utilizing this "tie coat" functionality, dissimilar materials can be combined to produce a substrate with the unique properties of each material.
This dispersion provides outstanding adhesion to both metallic and cellulosic substrates and enhances the water, grease, oil, and solvent-resistance of coatings and adhesives. It can serve as a tie coat or primer for extrusion coatings, a foil laminate, specialty paper coating, paper sizing agent, heat sealable coating, and a nonwoven binder, and used as a thermally active binder in thermal transfer release coatings.
