BYK Additives & Instruments

Additives for thermoplastics

The development of plastic modifiers has been marked by constant innovation from a wide variety of applications. In recent years, in addition to classic areas of application such as the coupling of glass fibers in various polymers, the impact modification of PA, etc., BYK has developed modifiers for new applications.
