Trendsetting solutions for the coatings and paint industry

Additives from BYK offer a diversified, cross-sectoral spectrum of possible applications: you come across our specialty chemicals not only in top-quality technological products, such as tablet displays, wind turbines or high-tech cars, but also in the everyday things in life, such as parquet floors, washing machines or wall paints. In short, they’re involved everywhere.

Learn more about the functioning of our high-performance additives and their application fields, where our products provide surface protection, gloss, consistent color leveling or a soft-feel effect – at the world’s leading event for the coatings sector. At the European Coatings Show, we will be presenting our innovation offensive involving the latest products in surface technology, protection and finishing.

Have a chat with us – from April 4 to 6 – at the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg, Hall 4A, Booth 314b!

Excellent optical appearence and good substrate protection are major requirements. BYK offers the right additives for solvent-borne and aqueous primer surfacers, one-coat topcoats and basecoat / clearcoat systems. Defect-free surfaces with good leveling can be achieved as well as excellent defoaming and pigment stabilization (incl. effect pigments).

High surface smoothness, very good scratch and abrasion resistance, absence of bubbles, good substrate adhesion and very good leveling are decisive characteristics for can coatings. BYK offers food contact-approved additives which can be used in solvent-based, aqueous and radiation-cured can coating systems.

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 systems have the largest share in floor coatings.

Easy to clean, scratch-resistant, UV-resistant: BYK additives for wood and furniture coatings are of premium quality. Excellent surfaces with good leveling properties, no faults caused by craters or air bubbles, scratch-resistant and easy-to-clean surfaces – those are the basic requirements for wood coatings.
Pigment stabilization is an additional benefit in pigmented systems.

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.
