Michelman to Focus on New and Enhanced Application Solutions at European Coatings Show 2013 - Booth #7-523

CINCINNATI, OH – Michelman will be featuring a variety of new and enhanced surface modifiers in booth #7-523 at the European Coatings Show 2013 being held in Nurnberg, Germany from March 19-21, 2013.  One of the new products being introduced will be Michem® Wood Coating 75, a proprietary anionic formulation that provides excellent water resistance in topical wood coatings. The new low-VOC formulation prevents the swelling of wood in the presence of water, and produces outstanding water bead.


Other highlighted products will include:

  • Michem Prime 6121, a versatile dispersion that provides outstanding adhesion to both metallic and cellulosic substrates, aids corrosion protection, and enhances the water, grease, oil and solvent resistance of coatings and adhesives.

  • Michem Guard 349, a nonionic polyethylene dispersion designed to impart rub resistance, block resistance and matting properties in aqueous paints, coatings and inks.

  • NatureShield® 41, a natural oil emulsion used in wood and concrete applications to produce water resistance.  It also creates a wet look on stone surfaces.   As a penetrating oil emulsion, it highlights the grain of wood substrates.

  • Michem Emulsion 53145, a co-emulsion additive that produces superior rub and scratch resistance in aqueous industrial coatings and printing inks.  It can be used at 3% to 5% dry weight on polymer solids to improve coating performance.  It also works well as an anti-block additive with some water resistance properties.
