Binder Developed for Heat Resistance


Michelman has announced the availability of a new product in its ProHere line of water-based polymer dispersions and emulsions developed for use in metal coatings.

The company describes its new ProHere I 13002 as a waterborne polyimide binder designed for manufacturers of metal coatings that are exposed to extremely high temperatures.

It was developed to offer abrasion resistance, extremely high temperature resistance, excellent adhesion and very high chemical resistance and mechanical strength properties, according to the company.   

The zero-VOC formulation allows metal coatings to withstand long-term temperatures up to 370 degrees C (698 degrees Fahrenheit), it adds.

The new product is in one of the ProHere grades meant to provide corrosion protection and chemical resistance, adhesion and mechanical strength for a wide set of processing conditions and metallic substrates.
