Michelman’s New Ecronova RA 180 Plus for Wood Coatings Resists Stains and Discoloration

CINCINNATI, OH (April 14, 2016) – Michelman’s Ecronova™ RA 180 Plus is a new water-based cationic emulsion of an acrylic copolymer used as a binder for wood primer, paint and coating formulations. With its cationic chemistry, Ecronova RA 180 Plus is preservative free, and is exceptionally effective as a barrier to tannin and nicotine stains when used in wood primers. Because of its resistance to stains, combined with good scrub resistance, Ecronova RA 180 Plus is also effective for use in 2-in-1 wall paint formulations.

Ecronova RA 180 Plus is solvent and surfactant free and because it does not require coalescents, can be formulated into a very low VOC paint. It also provides outstanding adhesion, as well as water and alkali resistance. 

Michelman’s family of Ecronova RA high quality acrylic polymer dispersions are designed for use as binders in a wide variety of applications, including specialty architectural and industrial coatings, interior and exterior building paints, durable wood coatings, and concrete coatings.

Michelman will spotlight Ecronova RA 180 Plus in Booth #749 at the American Coatings Show 2016, being held April 12-14 in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
