These days, a world without plastic products is inconceivable. Regardless of whether they are in automobiles, floor coverings, wind turbines, or toothbrushes – plastics are useful everyday companions for us humans.
The matting of powder coatings constitutes a particular challenge for the coating industry. In contrast to liquid coatings, only minimum shrinkage occurs during the baking process, meaning that conventional matting is not possible with powder coatings.
Many additives on the market have a broad application profile and are thus suitable for use in the most widely varying markets and segments. These areas of application and differing systems in turn have specific requirements that influence the effectiveness of an additive.
BYK-1789, the new solvent-free and silicone-containing BYK defoamer, was awarded the prestigious “Ringier Technology Innovation Award 2021” in the “Coatings Industry” category in China. The award ceremony has been held in Shanghai on May 12, 2021.
BYK-1789 is a 100% defoamer that has been specially developed for aqueous corrosion protection coatings. It is highly compatible despite its strong effect, supports substrate wetting, and is extremely effective in reducing microfoam and macrofoam. A particular advantage is the exceptionally good internal air release of the coating, even in fast-drying systems. The very good internal deaeration of the entire coating system is reflected, among other things, in improved corrosion protection values of the coating system.
