Charles Kimbler, Global Technical Services & Developmental Manager for Michelman’s Coatings Group conducted a presentation entitled “New Acrylic Binder for Direct-To-Metal Corrosion Resistant Coatings” on Oct. 18 from 1:10–1:40 p.m.
In his presentation, Kimbler introduced ProHere A 03010, a new waterborne binder from Michelman that was developed specifically for high value DTM applications.
In Michelman’s show booth (328) – inside the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Convention Center – metal coating formulators were introduced to the company’s Ecrothan, Ecronova, and ProHere water-based resinous binders that are suitable for a wide range of processing conditions and metallic substrates. These solutions are used to enhance corrosion and chemical resistance, mechanical strength, and adhesion.
Also designed for metal coating formulators, Michelman’s ProHere L-range solutions are water-based lubricants and surface modifiers that improve lubricity, slip and torque/tension control, while adding anti-mar and anti-scratch properties. They can be used to improve surface optics including matting and brilliance.
According to Michelman, Wood coating formulators will discover new Ecronova, and Michem brands of low and no-VOC additive and binder resin solutions that improve scratch and mar resistance, water beading, water and swell resistance, anti-block properties and gloss. These new binder resins, per the company, exhibit excellent aesthetic properties, strong mechanical properties and that show superb adhesion to most substrates.
