BYK at ChinaCoat 2017: Exhibits Eco-friendly
Associative Thickeners & Additives
  • Environmentally friendly systems are becoming increasingly important worldwide
  • As a result, BYK has launched two new wetting and dispersing additives for aqueous systems this year, namely DISPERBYK-2080 and DISPERBYK-2081
  • Both additives offer optimal dispersion and stabilization of pigments and fillers, without impacting the water, corrosion and stain resistance of the coating system
  • In this way, modern, solvent-free additives emphasize the current trend for environmentally friendly problem solving while also offering extraordinary performance, especially in wood, furniture and protective coatings

New Associative Thickeners

  • Optimal rheology allows for perfect processing and application
  • The two new associative thickeners for the water-based additive range, OPTIFLO-T 1010 and OPTIFLO-H 7625 VF, provide the coating system with a bespoke rheology profile in the respective coating application range
  • While OPTIFLO-H 7625 VF dramatically increases viscosity in the low shear range and generates highly pseudoplastic flow behavior, OPTIFLO-T 1010 offers a near-Newtonian rheology profile with increased viscosity in the high shear range, and also delivers on the environmentally-friendly front
  • Both liquid products are free of VOC, APEO and tin
