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.
BYK has transformed its well-known Additive Guide into an even more user-friendly and informative Additive Guide app. The fresh design comes with new technology and enhanced functionalities for users.
BYK, one of the world’s leading suppliers in the field of additives and measuring instruments, will raise its prices for additives by eight percent (8%), effective from June 1, 2021, or as existing contracts permit.
This step is necessary to maintain the high service and innovation level of BYK Additives to its customers in light of increasing costs including raw materials, transportation, packaging, and energy. As a long-term partner for its customers, BYK continues to heavily invest in sites, capabilities, and services to secure leading support globally.
