PVC dry blends and compounds are becoming increasingly popular as a result of their versatility and cost-effectiveness. Individually formulated BYK additives are used especially for highly filled thermoplastic applications where common additives reach their limits. These products are particularly suited to inorganic pigments and fillers. This results in higher filling levels and a homogeneous distribution of fillers. These additives affect both the plastification process and the melting properties of the blends. BYK processing additives also enhance the release properties of the material, thereby increasing the efficiency of the production processes.
