BYK Additives & Instruments

Additives for Household, Industrial & Institutional Cleaners: Automotive Cleaners and Polishes

AQUACER 565

Aqueous carnauba wax emulsion for improving the surface characteristics of care products, polishes, and leather coatings.

AQUACER 1031

Emulsion based on a polyethylene wax for improving the surface properties of aqueous care products. Anti-slip effect and good foot traffic resistance.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
AQUACER 2650

Wax emulsion on the basis of carnauba wax for aqueous thermal transfer systems, ink ribbons, and hot-stamping foils.

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-3400

Silicone-containing substrate wetting additive for aqueous coatings, adhesives and maintenance products to reduce the surface tension. Good substrate wetting, no increase in the surface slip.

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-DYNWET 800 N

Silicone-free substrate wetting agent for aqueous coatings, printing inks, adhesives, sealants, and glass fiber sizings. Low foam stabilization. Reduces the dynamic surface tension and is particularly suitable for high-speed machines.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 

LAPONITE-EP

Highly shear thinning layered silicate rheological additive with organic modification for extra performance in difficult-to-thicken water-borne systems.
Used in surface coatings, household products and general and industrial applications. Recommended for systems containing higher levels of electrolyte.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
LAPONITE-RD

Highly shear thinning layered silicate rheological additive for water-borne systems.
Used in surface coatings, household products and general and industrial applications. Also used to stabilize emulsions.
Synergistic benefits are developed when formulated in combinations with polymer based co-thickeners.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 

NANOBYK-3603

VOC-free inorganic additive on the basis of aluminum oxide nanoparticles for aqueous architectural, industrial, wood and furniture coatings, and car polishes to improve scratch resistance.
