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-345

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. Solvent-free version of BYK-346.

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-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-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-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-1770

Silicone-containing defoamer for aqueous architectural coatings. Particularly suitable for thick layer systems with airless/airmix application. Solvent-free.

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. 

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.
