Low-VOC Michem® Wood Coating products set the water resistance standard for waterborne deck stains and sealants. Providing great versatility for exterior wood protection, each solution in Michelman’s line of topical wood treatment additives passes the ASTM D-4446 standard for swell resistance.
Michem® Wood Coating 70LV is the most hydrophobic of Michelman’s solutions, while Michem® Wood Coating 75 offers outstanding re-coatability for improved wet out. Both Michem® Wood Coating 70LV and Michem® Wood Coating 75 reduce water uptake and provide swell resistance to help control cracking and splintering on exterior wood application such as wood decks and fences.
