BYK-Chemie enters new markets with new NANOBYK® products

Published on 2006-08-24. Author : SpecialChem

Based on nanotechnology, three new additives from BYK-Chemie now offer long-lasting UV protection for aqueous furniture coatings and wood care applications: NANOBYK®-3820, NANOBYK®-3840 and NANOBYK®-3860.

Today, the market for UV absorbers is still dominated by organic products, but products based on nanoscaled UV absorbing materials are gaining more importance in the market. BYK-Chemie´s zinc oxide based NANOBYK®-3820, NANOBYK®-3840 and NANOBYK®-3860 additives belong to this promising product group.

In contrast to most rival inorganic products, the additives of the NANOBYK-3800 series are liquid, easy to incorporate and safe to use. They allow easy access to nanotechnology!

BYK-Chemie supplies three grades with varying zinc oxide particle sizes for different film transparency requirements: NANOBYK®-3820 is a dispersion of 40% 20nm ZnO particles in water, NANOBYK®-3840 is 40% 40nm ZnO particles in water, and NANOBYK®-3860 is 50% 60nm ZnO particles in water.
