See more Michem Coat products.


Multipurpose barrier coating particularly suited for two-sided coating jobs due to its printable and cold set gluable qualities. The coating imparts excellent water resistance, very good MVTR protection, and good oil resistance. It resists blocking in hot, moist stacks of corrugated board, resulting in excellent dyne stability. Michem® Coat 90 may be used alone as a single bump, or as a basecoat for other barrier-enhancing Michelman coatings.


Water resistant, moisture barrier coating with good anti-blocking characteristics.
