Mica Corporation to Highlight Functional Coatings at ICE USA

04/21/2017

Shelton, CT- Mica Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of waterborne primers and coatings for the flexible packaging industry, will exhibit waterborne coating technologies for heat-seal, matte, and non-woven applications at the International Converting Exhibition (ICE) in Orlando, Florida later this month.

“Mica is focused on developing new technologies to meet the current and future needs of the flexible packaging, graphic arts, and other industries. We look forward to showcasing our functional coatings and other technologies alongside hundreds of industry leaders at the ICE USA event.” Said Rob Hammond, Technical Sales Director of Mica.

The first of Mica’s waterborne coating technologies that will be highlighted is MICA HME-118-B, a VOC-free aqueous emulsion that can act as a sealing layer for a wide variety of film, foil, and paper applications. It also adheres to common plastic container materials. It has broad FDA compliance in the USA, which makes it a great solution for applications requiring direct-food contact.

Mica will also showcase a waterborne heat-seal coating designed specifically for non-woven applications. MICA MC-140 is a VOC-free aqueous emulsion that can be used as an ink-receptive topcoat for barcode labels. It has exceptional adhesion to spun bound high density polyethylene.

The third functional coating Mica will exhibit is MICA T-605-D, a low-VOC, single-pass, two-part aqueous urethane dispersion that functions as a matte coating for plastic films and paper. It offers transparency and scratch resistance, and can be laminated or heat-sealed at temperatures up to 350oF (175oC).

Mica will also be exhibiting its premier line of high-quality primers that can be used for a wide variety of flexible converting applications.

Mica will exhibit at Booth 252, located in the AIMCAL Pavilion. The ICE show will be held April 25-27 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
