BYK additives for optimized processes
Wesel, March 6, 2015. - At BYK Additives & Instruments, a leading supplier of additives and measuring instruments for the coatings, printing inks and construction industries, the final preparations for its presence at this year’s ECS are now running at full speed.
The company will be represented with an exhibition booth of around 300 sqm at the largest and most important trade fair for the coatings sector worldwide, scheduled for April 21 to 23, 2015 in Nuremberg.
Flagging up its motto for the year - “Obviously optimized” - the company will present its highly specialized product portfolio for the ongoing optimization of coatings, printing inks, adhesives and construction chemicals. In doing so, it will concentrate on four central themes: enhancing product quality, achieving cost savings, conserving resources and sustainably optimizing processes.
At Booth 512, Hall 4A, BYK will also present new products for optimized results such as the new high-molecular-weight wetting and dispersing additive DISPERBYK®-2055, characterized by its wide range of potential applications and an outstanding price-performance ratio, and BYK®-3560, an additive based on macromer technology for increasing the surface energy of cured coatings.
In addition to this, BYK will round off its overall presence at the exhibition by highlighting further attractive additives – of interest for powder coatings or automobile applications and more – in six technical product lectures accompanying the trade fair.
