Michelman launches Michem Emulsion 62330 for exterior wood applications

July 13, 2011

Michem Emulsion 62330 from Michelman is a fine particle-sized emulsion that delivers excellent water repellency when added to varnishes and other coatings such as architectural paint, stains and sealants, without affecting gloss, according to the company. It is used to produce reliable water beading in decks and sealants, and burnish resistance in interior latex paints. Its small particle size allows it to be used at low levels in high-gloss systems to improve water resistance. Highly compatible with a range of polymers, Michem Emulsion 62330 can improve anti-blocking and maintains low VOC levels. The product can be used in a wide variety of applications, including exterior wood, wood composite, architectural and decorative coatings and interior furniture and floor coatings.
