Welcome to the BYK booth at K2022 in Düsseldorf! We are a leading global supplier of additives and additive solutions, aiming to help our customers to fulfill their customers’ needs.
As life without plastics has become inconceivable, additives are crucial. They ensure material quality and functionality.
We offer innovative additives and additive solutions for plastics converters and compounders, for formulators and OEMs worldwide. Discover our extensive portfolio for plastics production and processing of reinforced composites, PVC plastisols, and a broad range of thermoplastic materials.
Netz- und Dispergieradditiv für hochgefüllte UP-Harzsysteme zur besseren Füllstoffbenetzung bzw. Füllgraderhöhung.
Prozessadditiv zur Reduzierung des exothermen Peak für ungesättigte, bei Raumtemperatur radikalisch härtende Polyester- und Vinylesterharzsysteme
Our formulated systems for recycling are designed to improve the recyclates’ quality, enabling new high-quality applications for used plastics rather than downcycling them.
SCONA is our multifaceted family of thermoplastics modifiers. The group includes adhesion promoters and coupling agents designed to improve advanced composites, fiber, glass fiber, or carbon fiber compounds, optimizing their mechanical properties and their impact strength.
BYK-C 8001 significantly enhances the mechanical strength of the material and, consequently, the robustness of the rotor blade, so that longer rotor blades can be manufactured at practically the same weight. Since the wind power market – just like the aviation market – only ever uses certified resources and raw materials, BYK decided to apply for BYK-C 8001 to be certified as the first additive worldwide, in spite of the minimal quantities of the additive actually used. This certification was undertaken by the globally recognized Germanischer Lloyd (DNV GL).
BYK-C 8001 enhances the mechanical properties by up to 60 percent, since the coupling agent BYK-C 8001 is a copolymer with reactive/surface active groups that optimizes the mechanical strength and the longevity of the fiber reinforced resins in the rotor blades. Results of fatigue tests directly indicate longer blade life. Another special feature is that it is deployable “irrespective of age” with every epoxy-compatible glass fiber fabric – while maintaining consistently high quality in the finished component.
Benefits: BYK-C 8001 is suitable for use not only in structural parts such as rotor blades, but also in comparable systems such as automotive or aviation components.
