Michelman’s expertise in waterborne wax emulsions and additives will be on full display during the upcoming Eastern Coatings Show 2019. With a focus on protection, preservation, and performance, Michelman will showcase an extensive line of water-based additive solutions for wood, metal, concrete, and architectural coating applications.
The company will highlight several materials formulated for specific applications:
Multiple product families, including Michem® Emulsion and Michem® Guard, offer a broad range of technologies that provide optimum protection, durability, and surface qualities in a wide array of architectural and special purpose coatings. They include weather resistant polymers for exterior façade paint, polymers for very low VOC interior paints with both scuff and scrub resistance, and performance-enhancing aqueous surface modifiers.
Michelman’s ProHere® line offers products designed to provide corrosion protection for metal. This product line includes surface modifiers and lubricants for COF control, as well as copolymer dispersions for use in electroplating sealer coats, including the all-new ProHere® E 00017.
Well known as a developer of water-based surface modification additives for wood coatings, the Michelman team will highlight its proprietary and low VOC Michem® Wood Coating line of wood treatments. These solutions provide long-lasting preservation of exterior wood applications such as decks, fences, outdoor furniture, and garden sheds delivering excellent water beading, superior water resistance, and outstanding weatherability.
