BYK-220 S

Wetting and dispersing additive for ambient-curing plastic systems and solvent-borne coatings to achieve pigment stabilization and to reduce flooding/floating. Contains silicone.

BYK-307

Silicone-containing surface additive for solvent-free and solvent-borne coating systems, printing inks and adhesive systems, with strong reduction of surface tension. Very good substrate wetting, prevents cratering, and increases surface slip. Solvent-free alternative to BYK-306.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-333

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-346

Silicone surfactant for aqueous coatings, printing inks and overprint varnishes with strong reduction in surface tension resulting in significantly improved substrate wetting. No increase in surface slip. Solution of BYK-345.

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-381

Polyacrylate-based surface additive for aqueous coatings and adhesives to improve leveling. Improves the leveling and substrate wetting in aqueous and radiation-curable printing inks and overprint varnishes.

BYK-420

Liquid rheology additive for aqueous and water-reducible coating systems for improving antisagging and anti-settling properties. The additive is also especially suited for manufacturing aqueous pigment concentrates. BYK-420 causes thixotropic flow behavior; post-addition is possible.

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

Fluorine-free, silicone-containing additive for improving substrate wetting and leveling in aqueous systems and solvent-free UV coatings.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-7420 ES

Liquid rheology additive for aqueous and water-reducible coating systems for improving anti-sagging and anti-settling properties. The additive is also especially suited for manufacturing aqueous pigment concentrates. BYK-7420 ES creates thixotropic flow behavior. Post-addition is possible.


CERAFLOUR 920

Micronized organic polymer for solvent-borne and aqueous coatings and printing inks for matting. In UV-curable powder coatings it improves surface hardness and has a matting effect.

CERAFLOUR 929

Micronized, modified polyethylene wax for solvent-borne and aqueous coating systems for improving surface protection and for matting.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
CERAFLOUR 1000

Biodegradable, micronized polymer with wax-like properties based on renewable raw materials for aqueous, solvent-borne and solvent-free systems for matting and improving surface protection and haptics (soft feel effect). Good matting, especially also in radiation curable systems.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations.
