Excellent optical appearence and good substrate protection are major requirements. BYK offers the right additives for solvent-borne and aqueous primer surfacers, one-coat topcoats and basecoat / clearcoat systems. Defect-free surfaces with good leveling can be achieved as well as excellent defoaming and pigment stabilization (incl. effect pigments).
Pioneering Solutions - Additives for aqueous Applications
The proportion of aqueous formulations used in the coatings industry has seen a continuous increase for more than thirty years. What started as regionally limited projects with the aim of reducing emissions in living spaces, has since become a global movement that has spread out to virtually all areas of application. In the meantime, more than half of all coatings are water-based, and it is generally expected that this segment will continue to see above-average growth.
At BYK, we recognized this trend early on, and have been leading the development of appropriate additives for decades. We analyze trends and, based on our technical expertise, find solutions to problems in the most varied of applications. To date, more than 40% of our additives are already being recommended for water-based coatings and printing inks.
Have a chat with us at the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg, Hall 4A, Booth 314b and see how adding the widest range of water-based additives throughout the industry can be for you!
