Michelman Wax Dispersions are Ideal for Adding Matting Effect to Aqueous Coatings and Varnishes

Typical application areas include wood coatings, particularly furniture and parquet lacquers, decorative and industrial coatings.

CINCINNATI, OH (January 23, 2008) - Michem® Guard 349 and Michem® Guard 350 from Michelman are two of the company's wax dispersions that are ideal for imparting a matting effect to most aqueous coatings and varnishes. They also enhance other properties such as abrasion resistance and water repellency, scratch, mar, abrasion and slip resistance.

Characterized by large particle size, Michem Guard 349 is a nonionic polyethylene, while Michem Guard 350 is a nonionic Fischer-Tropsch wax dispersion. Both are solvent-free and are designed to highlight the positive properties of large particle sized wax and minimize unnecessary interaction from dispersing agents.
