Coatings and industrial manufacturing company Michelman (Cincinnati) has recently introduced a waterborne coating solution for wood applications.

The company’s Ecrothan 2020 is a low-VOC, waterborne acrylic-polyurethane dispersion that’s used as a binder in industrial wood coating and building paint formulations, according to a company press release.

The company’s Ecrothan 2020 is a low-VOC, waterborne acrylic-polyurethane dispersion that’s used as a binder in industrial wood coating and building paint formulations.

The product, Michelman says, combines the environmentally friendly characteristics of a waterborne solution with chemical resistance, abrasion and scratch resistance, and hardness.

“Waterborne coating systems continue to gain in popularity and acceptance, however there are still many coatings market segments that are lacking in effective and low emission polymeric binder and surface additive options,” said Julien Verron, industry manager, Coatings Group at Michelman. “At Michelman, we are continually improving the performance levels of our waterborne chemistries, while simultaneously driving emission levels down to meet formulator’s and end-user’s requirements.”

The new binder also allows for different finish options such as gloss, transparency, color depth and wood grain enhancement, the company says.

The product is a rapid-drying, rapid anti-block, non-yellowing solution.
