BYK Additives & Instruments

Processing Additives

Processing additives from BYK are used in a number of plastics applications. These additives have generally positive influences on a wide range of processing parameters and the properties of the final product. These include, for example:

  • Reducing VOC emissions and odors
  • Increasing the mechanical strength
  • Stabilizing material mixtures (e.g., emulsions)
  • Improving the flow behavior
  • Improving release properties

The table below gives an overview of the existing product portfolio, the function and the application areas of the BYK processing additives.
