BYK Additives & Instruments

Additives for Paper Coatings and Converting: Coating process enhancement

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-425

VOC-free, liquid rheology additive for aqueous dispersion-based systems to improve anti-sagging and to adjust in-can viscosity. The additive is suitable for increasing the grinding viscosity of aqueous pigment pastes.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-3400

Silicone-containing substrate wetting additive for aqueous coatings, adhesives and maintenance products to reduce the surface tension. Good substrate wetting, no increase in the surface slip.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-3410

Silicone-free surface additive for aqueous coatings, printing inks as well as adhesives and sealants to improve substrate wetting.

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. 

OPTIFLO-L 1400

VOC-free associative thickener (HEUR) for aqueous systems to generate a Newtonian flow behavior.

OPTIFLO-T 1000

VOC-free associative thickener (HEUR) for aqueous systems to generate a Newtonian flow behavior.
