BYK-011

Silicone-free, polymer-based defoamer for aqueous coating systems (also radiation curable systems). Particularly recommended fort two pack polyurethane systems. Very good recoatability.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-038

VOC-free defoamer on the basis of mineral oil for aqueous emulsion paints and high gloss emulsion systems. APEO-free. Contains silicone.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-302

Silicone surface additive for solvent-free, solvent-borne, and aqueous coating systems and printing inks with medium reduction of surface tension and medium increase of slip.

BYK-347

Silicone surfactant for aqueous coatings, 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. Particularly good recoatability with thin layers (automotive coatings).

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-378

Solvent-free silicone surface additive for water-borne, solvent-borne, and solvent-free systems that increases surface slip and significantly reduces the surface tension at low doses. Low foam stabilization.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-1611

VOC-free silicone-containing defoamer for aqueous coatings and adhesives. Preferably used in dispersion systems within a PVC range of 35-70. Cost-effective alternative to mineral oil defoamers.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-1617

VOC-free silicone-containing defoamer for aqueous architectural coatings and adhesives. Preferably used in dispersion systems within a PVC range of 60-85. Cost-effective alternative to mineral oil defoamers.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-1679

Silicone defoamer for aqueous systems.

BYK-1723

VOC-free silicone-containing defoamer for aqueous architectural coatings, and adhesives. Preferably used in dispersion systems within a PVC range of 60-85. Cost-effective alternative to mineral oil defoamers.

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.


BYK-D 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-D 420 causes thixotropic flow behavior; post-addition is possible.

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. 

OPTIGEL-CK

Rheology additive based on an activated phyllosilicate for aqueous systems to generate thixotropic flow behaviour.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
OPTIGEL-WX

Rheology additive based on an activated phyllosilicate for aqueous systems and mineral pre-mix mortars to generate thixotropic flow behaviour.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations.
