Michelman’s new Michem® Wood Coating 44 is a water-based surface modifier for use in exterior wood stains and sealants that helps produce wood coatings with excellent weatherability characteristics. This topical wood treatment is a low-VOC and environmentally responsible solution that imparts outstanding water beading, along with excellent water and swell resistance.
Michem Wood Coating 44 penetrates deep into wood substrates and is user-friendly posing no re-coatability issues, so a second or third layer can easily be applied. With its superior water-resistant properties, the new additive improves surface aesthetics by slowing mold and fungal growth, and improving color integrity. Michem Wood Coating 44 also produces a pleasing, natural surface appearance and is particularly suitable for softwood as well as extending the look and use of outdoor wood furniture.
The easy-to-use exterior wood treatment is based on naturally occurring products. It is the latest addition to Michelman’s family of low-VOC Michem Wood Coating solutions that raise the water resistance standard for waterborne deck stains and sealants.
Michelman will introduce Michem Wood Coating 44 at the American Coatings Show 2018 April 10th -12th, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Mr. John Jacquin, Michelman’s Technical Service & Application Development Manager, has a product presentation on April 10th at 2:40 pm, outlining its benefits and uses.
