BYK-154

Ammonium polyacrylate-based dispersing additive for pigment stabilization in aqueous emulsion paints and emulsion adhesives. It is used to improve colorant acceptance and is frequently combined with DISPERBYK-187. The additive is not available on the North American market. Instead, use BYK-152 or BYK-156, which only differ with respect to the non-volatile content.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-348

Silicone surfactant for aqueous coatings, adhesives, printing inks and overprint varnishes with a considerable reduction in the surface tension and therefore an improvement in the substrate wetting. Does not increase the surface slip. Suitable for systems that do not contain co-solvents.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-349

Silicone surfactant for aqueous coatings, adhesives and maintenance products with a considerable reduction in the surface tension and therefore good substrate wetting. Does not increase the surface slip. Suitable for systems that do not contain co-solvents. All-purpose.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-425

VOC-free, liquid rheology additive for aqueous dispersion-based systems to improve anti-sagging and to adjust in-can viscosity. The additive is suitable for increasing the grinding viscosity of aqueous pigment pastes.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-428

VOC-free, liquid high-shear thickener for aqueous dispersion-based systems to improve application viscosity (high-shear effect). The rheology additive improves leveling, reduces the tendency to spatter, and provides optimal brush drag.

BYK-3410

Silicone-free substrate wetting agent for aqueous paper coatings, adhesives, and printing inks. Reduces the dynamic surface tension. Stabilizes the curtain (curtain coating) in paper coatings.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-3455

Fluorine-free substrate wetting and leveling additive for aqueous systems and UV coatings with a strong reduction of the dynamic and static surface tension and an improvement of leveling properties. The additive has a low foaming tendency and no influence on surface slip. Especially suited for modern systems without cosolvent.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 

BYK-D 420

Liquid rheology additive for aqueous and water-reducible systems to improve anti-sagging and anti-settling properties. Increases thixotropy. The additive is particularly suitable for the production of aqueous pigment pastes. Contains DMSO as solvent. This product is also available with NMP as solvent (BYK-420) or NEP (BYK-E 420).

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 

BYK-DYNWET 800

Silicone-free substrate wetting agent for aqueous coatings and printing inks as well as adhesives and sealants. Marginally stabilizes foam. Reduces the dynamic surface tension and is particularly suitable for high-speed machines.


CARBOBYK-9810

Highly filled, water-borne carbon nanotube dispersion for enhancing mechanical properties, electrical conductivity, and antistatic behaviour. The additive is not available in the North American market.


DISPERBYK-191

VOC and solvent-free wetting and dispersing additive for aqueous coating systems and adhesives. Suitable for binder-free and binder-containing pigment concentrates. Particularly optimized for emulsion systems.

DISPERBYK-199

VOC-free wetting and dispersing additive for aqueous coatings and adhesives as well as pigment concentrates for stabilizing organic and inorganic pigments.

DISPERBYK-2015
