Metal Coatings Can Take the Heat with Michelman’s New ProHere I 13002

CINCINNATI, OH (February 16, 2016) – Michelman’s new ProHere™ I 13002 is a waterborne polyimide binder used by manufacturers of metal coatings with extremely high temperature resistance, excellent adhesion and very high chemical resistance and mechanical strength. The VOC free formulation allows metal coatings to withstand long term temperatures up to 370°C.

ProHere is Michelman’s line of water-based polymer dispersions and emulsions developed specifically for use in metal coatings. Available grades include polymer resins that serve as organic binders in coating formulations; lubricants; and anti-scratch additives for metal processing and in-use lubricants.

ProHere A, S, I, E and U-range grades provide corrosion protection and chemical resistance, adhesion and mechanical strength for a wide set of processing conditions and metallic substrates.

Michelman’s ProHere L-range solutions are water-based lubricants and surface modifiers that are ideal coating additives for lubricity, slip and torque/ tension control and scratch resistance, some can produce a matting effect on surface optics.
