Michelman to Introduce New Low-Voc, Waterborne Wood and Metal Coating Solutions At European Coatings Show 2017

Michelman will introduce European Coatings show visitors to two exciting new low-VOC, waterborne coating solutions for wood and metal applications. Michelman are continually improving the performance levels of waterborne chemistries, while simultaneously driving emission levels down to meet formulator's and end-userâ s requirements. The first of Michelman's waterborne technologies to be introduced at the show is Ecrothan® 2020, a low-VOC, waterborne acrylic-polyurethane dispersion used as a binder in industrial wood coating and building paint formulations. It combines the environmentally friendly benefits of a waterborne solution with outstanding chemical resistance, abrasion and scratch resistance, and hardness. The new binder also produces excellent optical qualities including gloss, transparency, color depth and wood grain enhancement. It is a rapid-drying, rapid anti-block, non-yellowing solution. Grades are available for hard surfaces as well as flexible substrates, including 100% cosolvent-free options. Michelman will also introduce visitors to ProHere® A03010, a waterborne, low-VOC, direct-to-metal (DTM) coating. The versatile new product can be used as a single layer DTM coating, or as a primer or top-coat in multi-coat systems. ProHere A03010 is the newest addition to the company's burgeoning family of industrial metal coating solutions that includes primers, top coats, DTM solutions, intumescent coatings, and lubricants. Michelman will exhibit in Hall 1 Stand 1-330 at the international show being held from April 4-6 at the Exhibition Centre in Nuremberg, Germany.

Michelman Introduces Hydrosize EP876

Michelman has introduced Hydrosize EP876, a high molecular weight epoxy-based fiber sizing for PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) and thermoset composite manufacturing applications. The new grade of Hydrosize can also be used as a binder in nonwoven applications, and complements Michelman's wide selection of fiber sizings and binders for thermoplastic applications. As a water-based, formaldehyde free dispersion, Hydrosize EP876 is environmentally friendly and eliminates the use of flammable solvents. It can be used with glass, carbon and natural fibers, produces good strand integrity, and offers good chopping behavior. Known primarily for its brand Hydrosize, Michelman's film forming dispersions optimize the surface chemistry of reinforcement fibers that are integral to high performance composites. The company's diverse product range is optimized for a broad range of thermoplastic and thermoset resins, including high temperature matrices. Hydrosize is applied during the manufacturing process of chopped or continuous strand fiberglass, carbon fiber, natural fibers and fillers, or post-applied when making non-wovens and composite pre-pregs. Grades are specifically engineered for many thermoplastic resins including polypropylene and polyamide, as well as various thermoset resins such as epoxy and polyurethane. Through the development and use of proprietary technologies, Michelman also offers grades capable of performing in high temperature thermoplastics such as PPS and PEEK.
