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.
Designed to provide excellent rub, mar and scratch resistance for the graphic arts industry.
Provides excellent anti-blocking, scratch and mar resistance as well as gloss in inks, coatings and overprint varnishes .
This phenol free additive is 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.
Enhances anti-blocking, slip properties and mar resistance and is used most effectively for wood coatings,inks and overprint varnishes.
A phenol free additive 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.
A water-based, dispersion which improves blocking, rub and abrasion resistance, and matting in pigmented coatings and semi-gloss coatings, inks, and overprint varnishes and at very low addition rates. It also produces smooth satin finishes at 5-10% addition rates.
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.
Provides mar, rub, block and scratch resistance as well as 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.
Exhibiting a high degree of water, block and mar resistance, and excellent compatibility, this product is used in many water based coating applications.
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.
Provides outstanding adhesion to both metallic and cellulosic substrates, and enhances the water, grease, oil and solvent resistance of coatings and adhesives. Can serve as a tie coat or primer for extrusion coatings, a foil laminate, a specialty paper coating, a paper sizing agent, a heat sealable coating, nonwoven binder and can also be used as a thermally active binder in thermal transfer release coatings.
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.
