BYK Additives & Instruments

Additives for Paper Coatings and Converting: Coating color preparation

BYK-012

VOC-free and silicone-free defoamer on polymer-basis for aqueous coatings, adhesives, and paper coatings. Particularly suitable for premium high-gloss architectural coatings. Optimal effect despite addition of smallest amounts only.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-016

VOC and silicone-free, polymer-based defoamer for aqueous coatings, adhesives, printing inks and overprint varnishes. This defoamer can also be used for the underwater pelletizing of thermoplastics.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-025

Silicone-containing defoamer for aqueous high gloss emulsion systems and adhesive systems. Particularly compatible and therefore easy to incorporate.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-093

VOC-free silicone-containing defoamer for aqueous wood, architectural and industrial coatings and adhesives. Extremely all-purpose. The finished coating has outstanding long-term stability in cold and hot storage. Easy to incorporate. Suitable for clear coatings, pigmented systems and all common types of application.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-154

Ammonium polyacrylate-based dispersing additive for pigment stabilization in aqueous emulsion paints and emulsion adhesives as well as thinner for water-based drilling fluids. Not available in North America.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-156

Wetting and dispersing additive on the basis of an ammonium polyacrylate for aqueous architectural coatings and adhesives for pigment stabilization. Often used in combination with DISPERBYK-187 to improve color acceptance. Only available in North America.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. (Only available in North America)
BYK-1615

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

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-1640

Polymer-based, VOC- and silicone-free defoamer for aqueous coatings, printing inks, adhesives, paper coatings and construction chemicals. Optimum performance at the lowest dosage.
Suitable for applications that come into contact with food.


DISPERBYK-180

Solvent-free wetting and dispersing additive for solvent-borne, solvent-free and aqueous coating systems, printing inks and adhesives for stabilizing inorganic pigments, in particular titanium dioxide.

DISPERBYK-190

VOC and solvent-free wetting and dispersing additive for aqueous coating systems, printing inks and adhesives. Standard additive for binder-free pigment concentrates. Suitable for all pigments.

DISPERBYK-199

VOC-free wetting and dispersing additive for aqueous coatings and adhesives as well as pigment concentrates for stabilizing organic and inorganic pigments.
