Printing speeds in conventional printing are becoming ever faster, with a corresponding increase in the demands on the printing inks used. BYK additives help meet these increased requirements and develop the optimum printing inks. Whether to improve the color strength and transparency of a printing ink, to improve the abrasion resistance of printing inks and overprint varnishes, for efficient defoaming or to improve the wetting behavior – BYK offers the fitting additives for aqueous, solvent-borne and radiation-curing systems. Of course, they are also suitable for food contact applications according to certain regulations.
