Rheology Additives: Increasing viscosity - Solvent-borne/ solvent-free systems




BYK Additive Recommendations
BYK-405

Liquid rheology additive for solvent-borne coating systems to reinforce the rheological effectiveness of fumed silica. Facilitates silica incorporation, prevents separation, and increases/stabilizes thixotropic behavior.

BYK-430

Liquid rheology additive for solvent-borne and solvent-free medium-polarity systems to improve anti-sagging and anti-settling properties. The additive is particularly suitable for thick layer systems due to its pseudoplastic flow behavior.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-431

Liquid rheology additive for solvent-borne and solvent-free non-polar systems to improve anti-sagging and anti-settling properties. The additive is particularly suitable for thick layer systems due to its pseudoplastic flow behavior.

BYK-7410 ET

Liquid rheology additive for medium-polarity solvent-borne and solvent-free coating systems as well as PVC plastisols and ambient-curing resin systems. The additive creates highly thixotropic flow behavior and consequently improves the anti-sagging and anti-settling properties. Post-addition is possible.

BYK-7411 ES

Liquid rheology additive for low-polarity solvent-borne and solvent-free coating systems to improve anti-sagging and anti-settling properties. The additive creates highly thixotropic flow behavior. Post-addition is possible.


BYK-R 605

Liquid rheology additive for plastic applications such as vinylester and epoxy resins, unsaturated polyester resins, and gel coats to reinforce the rheological effectiveness of fumed silica. Facilitates silica incorporation, prevents separation, and increases/stabilizes thixotropic behavior.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
BYK-R 607

Rheology additive for solvent-free and solvent-borne systems to enhance the rheological properties in conjunction with hydrophilic fumed silica and clay additives.
