Michem® Guard Produces Outstanding Matting and Abrasion Resistance in Wood Varnishes
Michem® Guard 200 and 201 are two of the newest additions to Michelman’s line of Michem® Guard brand waterborne dispersions. Formulated for use in water-based wood varnishes for flooring and other interior and exterior applications, the additives are used to produce superior matting and abrasion resistance.
Michem® Guard 200 is formulated for use in urethane/acrylic floor varnishes, while Michem® Guard 201 is used in acrylic/urethane interior and exterior varnishes. Both produce a remarkable matting effect, resulting in a more natural-appearing surface. Michem® Guard 200 also demonstrates excellent abrasion resistance.
Convenient and easy-to-use, each matting agent is added at 3%-10% solids on solids. In addition, both products are compatible with silica and other additives.
Michelman’s Michem® Guard family of waterborne dispersions are used by leading paint and coating manufacturers for their ability to add optimum slip, abrasion, mar, and block resistance, and provide a matting effect without using solvents.
