BYK Additives & Instruments

Additives for Lubricants and the Foundry Industry : Metal Working Fluids



Metalworking fluids are widely used in industry. Examples are:

  • cutting fluids
  • drilling fluids
  • rolling fluids

A variety of additives are used in all of these to improve performance.

BYK defoamers / air release agents can be used to prevent foam generation, and to release air that enters the media during application.

BYK surface additives improve the wetting of the substrate – and thereby the lubricating and cooling performance.

BYK wetting and dispersing additives can be used to improve the wetting and dispersion of solid particles.

BYK rheology additives can be used to tailor the flow properties of the metalworking fluid.
