MICHELMAN: Wax Dispersions

April 1, 2008

Michem® Guard 349 and Michem® Guard 350 from Michelman are two wax dispersions ideal for imparting a matting effect to most aqueous coatings and varnishes. They also enhance other properties such as abrasion resistance, water repellency, scratch, mar, abrasion and slip resistance.

Characterized by large particle size, Michem Guard 349 is a nonionic polyethylene, while Michem Guard 350 is a nonionic Fischer-Tropsch wax dispersion. Both are solvent-free and are designed to highlight the positive properties of large-particle-sized wax and minimize unnecessary interaction from dispersing agents.
