Michelman will introduce American Coatings Show 2016 attendees to its line of polymeric binder systems that are formulated to work flawlessly with the company’s specialty line of surface additives. This pairing of compatible Michelman binders and additive technologies gives customers a competitive advantage by facilitating faster new product development time and improved speed-to-market.
Featured solutions include water-based, low and no-VOC coating systems based on Ecronova and ProHere brand polymeric binders in combination with a variety of Michem and other popular brands of surface additives. These highly effective, and proven solutions feature rapid film forming without the use of added coalescents. They also exhibit rapid development of properties including tack free surface aspect, as well as water and chemical resistance.
Examples include new ProHere S 06004 for industrial markets, a coating binder that can be used to formulate a rust-conversion primer. This allows the application of a protective primer on rusty ferrous metals without the need for rust-removal, saving valuable time and money for the end-users.
Michelman will also feature ProHere V 30290, a waterborne coating binder that allows paint manufacturers to formulate intumescent coatings with fire retardancy rating of 90 minutes (F90).
For use in industrially applied wood coatings, Michelman’s Ecronova RA 666 is a waterborne coating binder for 1k wood lacquers with 2k-like chemical resistance and best-in-class anti-blocking properties.
In applications such as these, where very tough polymers must be combined with wax additives to produce desired surface properties, Michelman’s ability to quickly solve incompatibilities and help achieve the optimal mix is a powerful advantage.
The American Coatings Show 2016 is being held in Indianapolis, Indiana. Show attendees in search of high performance, user-friendly solutions for wood coatings, metal coatings, architectural specialty coatings, as well as inks and OPVs will find Michelman in booth #749.
