Michelman introduces green-friendly water-repellent additives

NatureShield is a new line of environmentally friendly water-repellent additives for interior and exterior wood, stone and concrete coatings from Michelman Inc. All are emulsions of natural oils and waxes that provide excellent water resistance and water beading when used in coatings, stains and sealants.

NatureShield 30 is an emulsion of tung oil that provides a tough, highly water-resistant finish that does not darken noticeably. When used in coatings for stone surfaces, it provides durability and a desirable wet look when dry.

NatureShield 31 is an anionic emulsion of natural oils and waxes that is typically used in wood stains and sealants.

NatureShield 40 is a film-forming natural oil emulsion used to provide water resistance in concrete coatings as well as moderate resistance to scratches. It will also create a wet look on stone surfaces.
