"Michem Emulsion 47950" wax emulsion from Michelman is a sacrificial anti-graffiti coating additive that also provides effective water repellency and anti-blocking. It is commonly used as a surface modifier in concrete coatings to reduce or eliminate concrete’s susceptibility to damage caused by weather, equipment, vehicles or foot traffic. In concrete construction specifically, this emulsion improves the resistance of finished concrete to water, scuff, abrasion, stains, graffiti and hot tire pickup. It can also be applied to freshly-poured concrete as a curing membrane to control and optimise cure rates, and is often added to "cure and seal" formulations to act as a long-lasting barrier coating. The product is also suitable for use in fiber treatments during the production of cordage and twine to enhance slip resistance, as well as in industrial and wood coatings.
