Field of Application – Can Coatings We take some things to the extreme Can coatings have to fulfill a multitude increased and by representing the Clemen test. The harder and more of demands. The inside of the can efficiency by means of various market- scratch-resistant a coating, the more is made up of a protective coating typical test methods we can offer our durable and stable the subsequent can. between the metal can wall and the customers a preselection, true to the filling. The improved scratch-resistance motto: “less is more”. In the majority Can coatings are also used as a sealant, and abrasion-resistance of the outside of applications a food contact legal e.g. in the case of a yoghurt carton. of the can offers protection from status of our additives is required and Here, the coated inside of the flexible damage during transport or storage. products are selected based on this. aluminum lid is quickly adhered, or Can coatings also undertake various rather, sealed against the plastic carton decorative roles. The coating enables A fundamental test is the measurement by means of pressure and temperature. the cans to be manufactured and for surface smoothness. In doing BYK wax additives can influence the ensures their formability. Our additives so, the coefficient of friction (COF) required seal strength. The hot-sealing help these requirements to be fulfilled. is established by drawing a defined bench is used to test this property. weight over the coating surface at a We test the efficiency of our additives defined speed. By measuring the COF, in newly developed products in a we can assess the efficiency of wax multitude of coating systems. Individual additives and silicone additives in the recommendations can be expressed for coating. each application. It is with the targeted additive packages that the quality We can establish the scratch resistance of a can coating can be significantly of a coating by implementing the Scratch test with pinholes Producing a sample in the hot-sealing bench The covers of the BYK sample orders are provided with coatings which contain BYK additives 31
