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-1611

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-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-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. 
LAPONITE-S 482

Highly shear thinning layered silicate rheological additive for water-borne systems.
Used in highly filled surface coatings and general applications. Synergistic benefits when used in combinations with polymer based co-thickeners.
Forms low viscosity pre-mixes in water, which thicken on addition to formulations.

LAPONITE-SL 25

Ready-for-use concentrated aqueous dispersion of layered silicate rheological additive for water-borne systems.
Used in highly filled surface coatings. Synergistic benefits when used in combinations with polymer based co-thickeners.
Forms low viscosity pre-mixes in water, which thicken on addition to formulations.
