THE additive portfolio for fiber reinforced composites
In order to exploit the full potential of modern composites based on thermoplastics or duroplastics, the use of special additives provides great benefits. They are even used in starting raw materials for component manufacturing. For example, in sizing they are incorporated to improve processing or bonding of the fibers to various matrix systems. When directly used in resins, additives can modify a multitude of properties. In the finished formulation, they can significantly improve or, depending on the process, even make some processing properties feasible. Finished components have better properties or surfaces if additives have been used.
Our latest and differentiating product highlight is BYK-C 8013. It’s the world’s first solvent-free, polymeric coupling agent with a great impact on the mechanical strength on carbon fibers.
As one of the world’s leading supplier of plastics additives with longstanding experience in the field of composites, BYK is your partner, working together to develop the best technical solution.
