Additives for Printing Inks

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.

Learn more about DISPERBYK

DISPERBYK is BYKs main brand for wetting and dispersing additives. DISPERBYK wetting and dispersing additives provide a fine and homogeneous distribution of solid particles in liquid media and ensure the long-term stability of such systems. The additives stabilize pigments (inorganic, organic and also effect pigments) and fillers. The liquid phase can comprise water and the entire range of organic solvents of varying polarity. Wetting agents are surface-active substances and improve the wetting of solids. Dispersing agents prevent particles flocculating by various mechanisms (electrostatic effects, steric effects). Wetting and dispersing additives unite both mechanisms of action in one product, i.e. they are both wetting and stabilizing. DISPERBYK wetting and dispersing additives can be used in a wide range of different applications.
