BYK Additive solutions for thermoplastics
The demands made of compounders and processors are constantly increasing: quality, innovation, and economic efficiency are the key factors for success.
Along with these ever-increasing demands, the strains on raw materials and manufacturing processes are growing in equal measure. However, the physical limits in these areas can quickly reach capacity.
For example, compounds with high filler loadings are hard to process, which can lead to poor dispersion of the fillers and impairment of the mechanical properties. And even the high-quality appearance desired in the production of color masterbatches cannot always be easily achieved.
The dispersion of the pigments is one of the most important stages in the production process, which often does not run ideally. Undesired effects, such as changes in shade or loss of gloss, are possible consequences.
These and other similar problems are countered by BYK additives. Their addition helps to optimize not only the properties but also the processing conditions.
Our portfolio here ranges from additives for liquid color masterbatches and solid masterbatches, through process additives for the production of thermoplastic compounds, to our innovative stripping agent BYK-P 4200 for the effective reduction of VOCs and odors.
