Visit the No. 1 in Additives for Water-based Applications

The world is changing rapidly, and China is in the first row. As part of this change, the megatrend towards environmentally friendly products is indisputable – not only in coatings, but also in plastics and industrial applications.

BYK has accompanied this change right from the start, and, as a technology leader for aqueous applications, is showing at this year’s Chinacoat that more than 40 % of BYK additives are already being recommended for aqueous coatings. BYK is the global leader, offering the widest range of water-based additives throughout the industry.

Heavy duty coatings – the toughest industrial coatings require robust support. BYK additives boost the performance of all anti-corrosion coatings by improving specific aspects of their functionality. They are also highly practical and suitable for a wide range of applications because, depending on your requirements, they can increase color brilliance, vary a coating’s hardness or elasticity, or generally improve protective properties of the coating.

To a great extent, inkjet inks depend on dispersion of pigments into particles that are as fine as possible. At the same time, a Newtonian flow together with excellent stabilization of the pigment dispersions is required. BYK provides wetting and dispersing additives for this purpose, which cover the entire range of pigments used for inkjet inks.

Across the world, increasing numbers of floors are being finished with liquidpolymer coatings. They used to only be seen in warehouses and productionsites, but now you’ll come across them in shopping centers, schools, and hospitals. These coatings are now also available to end clients, whether they be for decorative purposes in bathrooms or to roll over the old screed in the garage. Epoxy applications have the largest share in floor coatings.
