May 9, 2011

Michelman offers Michem Guard 7140, a water-based, large particle emulsion that improves rub and abrasion resistance in pigmented coatings and semi-gloss coatings. It is effective at very low addition rates of two to five percent, making it an economic solution, according to the company. It can also be used to matte coatings and varnishes to a smooth satin finish at five to ten percent addition rates. Michem Guard 7140 is typically used in coatings that go on exterior wood and wood composites, interior wood furniture and wood flooring.
