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.

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.

The high line speeds of industrial band coating operations and the subsequent extreme deformation of the coated sheets demand coatings with very good color stability. They must also be free offoam, provide excellent leveling, adhere well and have surface characteristics such as smoothness, scratch and abrasion resistance, and also enhanced ease of cleaning. With BYK additives,these properties can be achieved in all coil coating application areas.

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.

Improvement of leveling and prevention of craters are the most important requirements in powder coatings. BYK Additives can also enhance degassing and pigment wetting.
