150 years of BYK= 150 years of focus on innovation: We start our anniversary year with a success story in terms of sustainability. Our BYK production site in Shanghai has been equipped with a solar plant covering around 2,000 square meters.
We are proud and happy. 2023 is a very special year for us and our customers. 150 years ago in Berlin, Dr. Heinrich Byk founded a company that has grown over the years to become a leading global specialty chemicals manufacturer.
The next success story in terms of sustainability: BYK USA Inc. receives EcoVadis Gold status!
BYK USA is the fourth BYK company to receive EcoVadis Gold status - following BYK Additives Ltd. (UK), BYK Netherlands B.V. (Netherlands) and BYK-Chemie GmbH (Germany). BYK USA Inc. is thus among the top 5 percent of companies certified by EcoVadis. We are proud!
BYK-Chemie GmbH has been awarded gold status by EcoVadis, the world’s largest assessment platform for sustainability. This puts BYK-Chemie GmbH among the top 4 percent of companies in the industry rated by EcoVadis.
BYK-Chemie GmbH is now the third company within BYK to undergo an EcoVadis assessment. The two companies BYK Additives Ltd. in the UK and BYK Netherlands BV. also achieved gold status in the past.
At the beginning of next year, Dr. Christoph Schlünken will hand over his Management Board responsibilities to Dr. Tammo Boinowitz.
Sustainability is an important aspect in the development of new products. In addition to the product’s direct properties and effects, questions regarding environmental impact, chemical basis, and energy consumption often play a significant role too.
This year's BYK Live Event is over and we are happy about so much international interest: More than 4200 viewers from over 95 countries were present! For all those who were not able to attend or who would like to have a closer look at one or the other presentation, we have now made the video recordings available on the event page live.byk.com.
Classic PTFE-based wax additives possess special properties that other materials do not have – they offer outstanding scratch and abrasion resistance in a whole range of areas of application. For some time now, however, the use of PTFE has been viewed increasingly critically at a global level.
Get inspired by our latest innovations in regulatory compliant, water-based and solid additives at the BYK Live Event on May 24.
BYK, one of the world’s leading suppliers in the field of additives and measuring instruments, will raise its prices for additives by 25 percent (25%), effective from June 1, 2022, or as existing contracts permit. It is important to note that for many of our products the increase may differ substantially depending on the cost dynamics.
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, energy, transportation, and packaging. As a long-term partner for its customers, BYK continues to heavily invest in sites, capabilities, and services to secure leading support globally.
BYK has launched a new additive portfolio for home care applications. The so-called PURABYK additives offer innovative solutions for detergents and cleaning agents as well as a wide range of additives for care purposes. Amongst other features, the BYK additives optimize the rheology configuration of cleaners and detergents, protect surfaces, regulate foam formation, support wetting and dispersing, and much more besides.
