Field of Application – Industrial Coatings Diversity under the microscope What do tractors and cell phones have a button. We can put to the test key in common? Both are products which questions in terms of the quality of can be optimized using our additives. our additives: How do our additives The scope for industrial coatings is influence the gloss and the leveling of enormous: It extends from agricultural a surface? How do they increase the commercial vehicles to coatings on load capacity? consumer electronics, and from flooring to glass. So how can you implement To do this, we test, among other factors, BYK additives in such a multitude of the distribution of the pigments in the applications? coating so as to exclude flocculation. Abrasion test with Wazau system Our special microscope also enables The demands on industrial coatings measurements to be taken of the differ considerably. Depending on the pigment loading in aqueous solvent- application, for example, the mechanical borne coatings. The pigment loading capacity, the visual impression or the which can be influenced by our flexibility could play a critical role. We wetting and dispersing additives has a use state-of-the-art measuring and decisive influence on the color stability analysis equipment to prove which of pigment blends. We also use the of our additives possess the optimum microscope to analyze coating defects, effect for each of the applications in like, for example, craters. question. Pigment grind with Dispermat The scratch and abrasion resistance of On this basis, we provide coatings is of exceptional importance in recommendations for the use of wetting many industries. Special tests in which and dispersing additives, surface we examine how coatings change when additives or defoamers, rheological they rub against materials or paper agents and adhesion promoters. In simulate the abrasion characteristics addition, we can establish precise of, for example, cell phones in trouser information regarding the correct pockets. We also test for this, and dosage. therefore verify the positive effects of our surface additives. The Dispermat is a key aid in producing Pigment loading measurement under the different pigment grinds. It simulates microscope the mills which are used in production, however with a considerably lower use of material. The coating machine is used so that we can change the spraying application to meet the most versatile of parameters. This enables us to represent the positive effects of our additives in a reproducible manner and in the most varied of Cross-hatch for determining the adhesion coating formulations at the touch of 40
