Michem® Guard

Michem® Guard waterborne dispersions add optimum slip, plus abrasion, mar, & block resistance, without using solvents. Some also provide a matting effect for a more natural appearance.

Michem® Guard 200 and 201, formulated for use in water-based wood varnishes for flooring and other interior & exterior applications, impart superior matting and abrasion resistance.

Michem® Guard 400 is a multifunctional, water-based additive designed for interior architectural paints. This single VOC- and APEO-free additive delivers effective matting, resists burnish & scrub, and provides superior stain resistance in a liquid form that does not require dust collection or personal protective equipment during processing.
