Water resistance is critical when formulating deck stains and sealants. Michelman offers ultra low-VOC and highly effective additives for waterborne sealants under 300 GMs/L. Water repellency characteristics using Michelman's low-VOC additives consistently outperform solventborne sealants. ASTM D4446 swellometer tests conducted on southern yellow pine showed that Michelman's low-VOC additives significantly perform better than leading waterborne sealants. Michelman's low-VOC additives can also help reduce total plant emissions of VOCs and HAPs, which can help meet stringent permit requirements and possibly eliminate the need for expensive air pollution control equipment.
