BYK's BYK-P 9085 Processing Additive Provides Mold Release & Surface-enhancing Properties

Published on 2012-05-21. Author : SpecialChem

BYK-P 9085 was developed for Low Profile and Class A SMC systems. It stabilizes the compound and improves flow behavior. Because of its excellent mold-release properties, BYK-P 9085 completely replaces the traditional mold-release products. BYK-P 9085 improves the surface quality of the molded part. It also improves the paint adhesion and the bondability of the molded parts.

BYK-P 9085 affects thickening. An additional 10% MgO may be needed to achieve thickening properties comparable to the Zn/Ca stearate system.
