Water-based ink formulations with higher performance and better processing through the addition of APE-free Michelman additives.
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 very effective for mar resistance in floor polish formulations, as well as mar resistance and shine in car polish formulations.
Provides excellent anti-blocking, scratch and mar resistance as well as gloss in inks, coatings and overprint varnishes .
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.
Enhances anti-blocking, slip properties and mar resistance and is used most effectively for wood coatings,inks and overprint varnishes.
A phenol-free additive is 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.
Provides mar, abrasion, slip and high temperature resistance for a variety of applications within the paint and coating industries.
Water based one micron dispersion which improves rub and abrasion resistance in pigmented and semi-gloss coatings, and inks and overprint varnishes at very low addition rates with little effect on gloss.
This water based dispersion promotes mar resistance and flatting properties in paint and coating formulations.
Designed to impart rub resistance, block resistance and matting properties to aqueous paints, coatings and inks.
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.
APEO-free and formaldehyde-free slip additive made from renewable materials allowing to control the coefficient of friction. This additive enters the formulation of acrylics, PVdC and Michelman low temperature heat seal coatings without affecting bond strength, printability and barrier properties of the coatings. Michem® Lube 160 RPH fully complies with FDA and EU food contact regulations.
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 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.
This wax emulsion has excellent compatibility in water-based coating applications and provides water, block, and mar resistance.
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.
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.
