BYK Unveils BYK®-3933 P Powdered Multifunctional Leveling Additive

Published on 2011-04-08. Author : SpecialChem

BYK®-3933 P is powdered multifunctional leveling additive on the basis of a modified polyacrylate on silica for clear and pigmented powder coatings. High transparency, wettability and recoatability of the powder coating film.

Good leveling is a "must" for every powder coating. Consequently, there is a wide variety of standard leveling additives available. However, there are different coating problems and performance profiles that can't be served by the usual products. Contrary to the standard leveling additives, the new BYK®-3933 P is multifunctional. It not only ensures good leveling and anti-cratering effects, but it also creates a high, unspoiled transparency with minimized haze in powder clearcoats.

It provides sound wetting and easy coatability, which is especially important for powder coatings that are basecoats or those that are recoated with liquid coatings, and it prevents fogging effects caused by evaporation or humidity.
