ACS 2018: BYK Additives for an Optimized Future
As a leader in innovative additive technology, BYK offers premium solutions across a variety of applications. Our closeness to customers and markets enables a deeper understanding of specific challenges in the most diverse applications. At this year’s American Coatings Show, BYK will reveal a collection of new additives that are systematically tailored to meet market requirements.
New surface technology, BYK-3565 is a macromer-modified acrylate additive. Its special modification enables it to orientate itself towards the coating surface while increasing the surface energy of the dried coating film. This simultaneously improves the overcoatability offering advantages in automotive and general industrial coatings, as well as in architectural coatings.
To further develop the rheology product portfolio, BYK will present two high performing thickeners that are free from APEO, VOC, S-VOC, tin and propylene glycol. OPTIFLO-T 1010 for aqueous coatings provides enhanced syneresis and spatter resistance and shows a significant improvement in spreadability in the high shear area. OPTIFLO-H 7625 VF generates high pseudo-plastic flow properties which increases viscosity, reduces sagging tendency and increases stability in the low shear range. Both additives can be used in many applications, offering a high level of effectiveness and reducing the complexity of the coating system.
This year, BYK will present a series of in-booth presentations focusing on the latest additive advances and technology trends.
