03.01.2017 - CERATIX 8561, CERATIX 8563 and CERATIX 8566

CERATIX 8561, CERATIX 8563 and CERATIX 8566 - NMP-free Wax Additives for Excellent Effect Pigment Orientation in Solvent-borne Coatings

The proven wax additives CERATIX 8461, CERATIX 8463 and CERATIX 8466 contain a small quantity (< 0.5 %) of N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP). However, there are increasing demands to manufacture effect pigment coatings that are entirely free from NMP. To meet these market requirements, BYK has optimized the manufacture of these CERATIX wax additives so that it can produce NMP-free products. The new NMP-free wax additives CERATIX 8561, CERATIX 8563 and CERATIX 8566 are an alternative to the established products and offer an equivalent substitute. They are recommended for usage in automotive, general industrial, and leather coatings (CERATIX 8561).

03.01.2017 - CERAFLOUR 955, CERAFLOUR 958 and CERAFLOUR 959

CERAFLOUR 955, CERAFLOUR 958 and CERAFLOUR 959 - wax additives for fine uniform textures in powder coatings

CERAFLOUR 955 is a pure PTFE (Polytetrafluorethylene)-type which is highly effective even at low dosage providing intense texture effects along with deep mat finishes. CERAFLOUR 958 and CERAFLOUR 959 are both PTFE-modified PE (polyethylene) waxes that allow for a wide range of texture and matting levels from semi- to deep-mat finishes. All three products have an optimal price-performance ratio and, hence add great economic benefit to powder coating formulations.

28.11.2016 - BYK-1788

BYK-1788 - VOC-free and Silicone-free Polymer Defoamer for Solvent-borne, High-solid and Solvent-free Systems. Particularly Suitable for 100 % UV Systems

100 % systems and particularly UV-curing coatings are difficult to defoam as a result of their high processing viscosity and lack of solvent. However, their economic and environmental friendly formulation makes them popular for use in wood, furniture, leather, and general industrial coatings as well as thermoset applications. Along with high effectiveness, clear systems in particular require good defoamer compatibility to guarantee excellent transparency and high gloss. The well-balanced interaction of effectiveness and compatibility makes the new additive BYK-1788 particularly suitable for non-pigmented systems. BYK-1788 is silicone- and VOC-free and does not introduce any solvents to the formulation. However, in solvent-borne coating systems and those with high solids, BYK-1788 demonstrates its full spectrum of performance.

28.11.2016 - BYK-1799

BYK-1799 -  VOC-free Silicone-containing Defoamer for Solvent-borne, High-solid and Solvent-free Systems. Particularly Suitable for 100 % UV Systems

100 % UV systems generally display a higher processing viscosity as a result of a lack of solvents. If the formulation also contains matting agents and pigments, defoaming becomes difficult. For example, to be effective at high application speeds such as during roller application, it is necessary to have a spontaneous and highly effective defoamer. The new BYK-1799 has these properties and is effective even at an extremely low dosage. Adding BYK-1799 also effectively prevents both micro- and macrofoam. The main fields of application are UV wood and furniture coatings, and UV printing inks. However, it also perfectly defoams solvent-borne and high solid systems.

24.10.2016 - AQUACER 1013 y AQUACER 1039

AQUACER 1013 y AQUACER 1039 - Aditivos de cera  que cumplen con la Ecolabel para sistemas acuosos

En consecuencia con la reclasificación de algunos productos químicos y la revisión de los límites de uso de sustancias clasificadas como peligrosas en distintas Ecolabel Europeas, BYK ha desarrollado aditivos que cumplen con los estándares actuales y que pueden usarse sin ninguna limitación. Con ello damos salida a los requerimientos para adaptar las actuales formulaciones a las ultimas directrices sobre seguridad y medioambiente. AQUACER 1013 es una emulsión de cera de HDPE para mejorar la protección superficial de pinturas y tintas de imprimir acuosas así como en productos para el cuidado doméstico y pulimentos. La emulsión de cera parafínica AQUACER 1039, mejora las características superficiales de pinturas y tintas de imprimir acuosas.

25.07.2016 - DISPERBYK-2205

DISPERBYK-2205  es un humectante y dispersante de pigmentos sólido, se utiliza en una multitud de recubrimientos con disolvente y tintas de impresión

DISPERBYK-2205 extiende la familia de dispersantes sólidos de alta eficacia. Debido a una optimización de la distribución del peso molecular, el aditivo es compatible con una gran variedad de sistemas; su reducido índice amínico y el un carácter casi neutro nos permite usarlo también en sistemas catalizables. DISPERBYK-2205 aporta una baja viscosidad a la base de molienda, una perfecta estabilización de los pigmentos y recubrimientos con alto brillo y sin velo en aplicaciones para "coil", automoción y muebles. En tintas de impresión se puede utilizar en sistemas de media polaridad y UV.

06.07.2016 - BYK-326

BYK-326 - Aditivo de superficie con una actividad moderada y con un alto contenido en sólidos para mejorar la nivelación de sistemas con disolvente, sin disolvente y acuosos

Cuando necesitamos una amplia compatibilidad, por ejemplo el uso en sistemas acuosos y con disolvente, escogeremos un aditivo de polaridad intermedia. El nuevo BYK-326 tiene un perfil muy bien balanceado y completa la gama de aditivos BYK que pueden utilizarse en todos los sistema. Tiene una polaridad media y una actividad superficial (reducción de la tensión superficial) moderada, con lo cual, nos aporta una excelente nivelación.
