Michem® Prime 5931
Brand Family Overview
Michem® Prime functionalized copolymer dispersions deliver the flexibility, water/chemical resistance and barrier properties of polyethylene in a water-based form. Property enhancements include; excellent clarity, adhesion, lower heat seal temperature, toughness, and crosslinkability.See more Michem Prime products.
Provides improved adhesion to polyolefin substrates and also exhibits excellent adhesion to paper, metallic and polymeric substrates as well as glass and polyester scrim. It can serve as a tie coat or primer and increases printability on metallic and polymeric substrates. It can be used as a heat sealable coating on most polymeric films, paper and foil. Patents Pending.

Site of Manufacture (and Product Code)
Michem®Prime 5931 can be applied by flexographic or rotogravure coating methods. A typical application rate of 1-2 gsm dry coating weight is recommended for most heat seal applications. As a tie coat or print primer application rates of 0.2 to 0.5gsm are usually sufficient. EZ Cup Viscosity = 8 - 13seconds, #3 Cup.
Ensure adequate ventilation. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
