BYK Additives & Instruments

Advanced Composites
Driven by inspiration

BYK at JEC 2017

Learn how BYK, as one of the driving forces for forward-looking technologies, is improving the performance of wind turbines or carbon car bodies. Be inspired by our newest Additive Technology VCT (Viscosity Controlled Technology) that leads to a new way of formulating high viscous two-pack systems which extends our product range for thermoplastic applications additionally.

You can certainly look forward to our extensive technical solutions!
Have a chat with us at JEC in Paris from March 14 to 16 at our booth E 40 in hall 5 A! Talk to our experts and get to know on site how to make full use of the potential of modern composites and the benefits for your customer.

We look forward to seeing you there!


  • Automotive

High-performance composites support long-term the current lightweight design developments in the automotive industry. Here, BYK additives, which can be used both in thermoset and in thermoplastic based composite solutions, play a key role.

Wind power

  • Wind power

Wind power is one of the key technologies of our age – already a vital factor in the global energy industry today. With its high-end plastic additives, BYK is making a major contribution to increasing the performance values of wind turbines and thus providing a further boost to the market development of this constantly growing branch of global trade.

SCONA modifiers for wood plastic composites (WPCs) strengthen the physical bonding of wood fibers in thermoplastics in order to achieve higher loading levels while maintaining excellent mechanical properties and good resistance to environmental impact factors (e.g. deckings, outdoor-panels). However, in glass-fiber reinforced thermoplastics, such as parts for the automotive industry, SCONA modifiers are also being used more and more to improve mechanical properties.


Standardized quality control

  • Standardized quality control

The key for process optimization
BYK-Gardner QC solutions for color and appearance control provide objective and reliable measurement data. Whether you need to control gloss, solid color or effect colors, innovative technologies guarantee excellent technical performance and visual correlation. “smart-chart” data analysis software supports you to set up a global QC management system with standardized QC procedure, tolerances and reports. Facts and figures instead of feelings!
