BYK at ECS 2017: to Unveil Defoamers Suitable for UV Systems

Published on 2017-02-21. Author : SpecialChem

BYK has announced that it will unveil its latest additive solutions for radiation-curing coating systems at the upcoming European Coatings Show 2017 in Nuremberg. It is launching its VOC-free defoamers.

Features of BYK-1788 and BYK-1799

BYK Wood Coatings
Defoamers for conventional solvent-based
wood and furniture coatings.

  • VOC-free defoamers 
  • Used for solvent-borne, high-solid and solvent-free systems with particular suitability for 100% UV systems

As a defoamer with extraordinary broad compatibility, BYK-1788 is especially recommended for clear coat systems, whereas BYK-1799, on account of its very strong defoaming action, can be seen to be pre-eminently suited for matt or pigmented coating systems and printing inks.

To systematically supplement its product portfolio in the area of wetting and dispersing additives, BYK has developed two new products that are characterized by their highly effective dispersion and stabilization of untreated and treated silica-based matting agents.

Advantages of BYK’s Products

  • Helps in significant reduction in viscosity
  • Allows a large quantity of matting agents to be incorporated
  • Makes possible to achieve a far more homogenous incorporation and orientation of the matting agents for deep matt UV-curing and conventional solvent-based wood and furniture coatings

BYK will also be presenting new ideas and solutions for the future - such as for compliance with regulatory requirements or for the customized formulation of waterborne systems - and all this at Booth 314b in Hall 4A at the ECS, which will take place once again in Nuremberg from April 4 to 6.
