paint-image-news-06BYK has developed PTFE-free wax additives that not only are safe to apply, but that also ensure outstanding application results:

Additive with Scratch and Abrasion Resistance Benefits

On account of their special formulation, when compared with standard additives, these additives display comparable mechanical properties in terms of scratch and abrasion resistance and of surface slip.

Added to which – due to their fine particle size distribution – they are ideal for use in clearcoats and systems with low film thickness. In aqueous systems containing cosolvents, it is possible to achieve a matting effect.

BYK Sustainable Products

All three micronized wax additives are suitable for aqueous, solvent-borne, solvent-free, and UV coating systems, yet they also differ from each other in their areas of application:

  • CERAFLOUR® 1050 is especially recommended for clearcoats.
  • CERAFLOUR® 1051 displays the best of results in a wide range of application areas.
  • CERAFLOUR® 1052 is suitable for systems with low COF requirements.
