The CCE-JEC Innovation Awards were presented for the eighth year in a row, with 32 composite products / solutions from 30 companies nominated, and ten of them winning the final awards for their innovations in three categories: “Raw Materials”, “New Applications” and “Process & Equipment”.

BYK Additives & Instruments applied for the awards for the first time and they were the winners of the “Raw Materials” category. The award-winning products are BYK®-P 9065 and BYK®-P 9051, which have already been showing great success in optimizing the SMC/BMC process. Compared to traditionally used zinc stearate, these multifunctional processing additives work as internal mold release agents and can significantly improve the surface quality of molded parts, and they facilitate the molding process and minimize the scrap rate of SMC/BMC products.
