Michem Emulsion 62330 Provides Superior Water Resistance in Exterior Wood Applications; Reduces Burnishing in Interior Applications

CINCINNATI, OH (May 7, 2010) – Michem® Emulsion 62330 from Michelman is a fine particle-sized emulsion that delivers excellent water repellency when added to varnishes and other coatings such as architectural paints, stains and sealants, without affecting gloss. It is used to produce reliable water beading in decks and sealants, and burnish resistance in interior latex paints.

Under various exterior exposures and lab tests, Michem Emulsion 62330 displayed superior beading and sharp contact angle. Its small particle size allows it to be used at low levels in high-gloss systems to improve water resistance. Highly compatible with a range of polymers, Michem Emulsion 62330 can improve anti-blocking and maintains very low VOC levels.

Michem Emulsion 62330 is used in a wide variety of applications including exterior wood, wood composite, architectural and decorative coatings, interior furniture and floor coatings, furniture polishes, building and construction materials such as gypsum, and automotive upholstery.
