Michelman has introduced the newest addition to its line of ProHere® waterborne polymer dispersions and emulsions for use in metal coatings. Formulated for use in sealers for fasteners and window fittings, ProHere® E 00017 provides lubricity and enhanced corrosion resistance on electroplated metal.
Used at a low dry film thickness (DFT 0.5 – 7 µ), ProHere® E 00017 exhibits excellent adhesion to a variety of metals including cold-rolled, electroplated, and hot-dipped galvanized steel. Easily stripped from plating racks with a hot alkali solution, it contributes to metal preservation through its water, solvent, and acid resistance.
This new material performed well in several areas including salt spray tests, consistent COF measurements, and gloss. It is suitable for plating applications in many segments, including automotive and construction applications. Michelman’s production facilities in the Americas, Europe, and Asia ensure a reliable local supply of ProHere® E 00017 throughout the world.
Michelman representatives will be available to discuss ProHere® E 00017 and other solutions for metal in booth #207 at the Eastern Coatings Show held May 13-15, 2019 at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
