New Problem Solvers from BYK-Chemie

Published on 2005-01-14. Author : SpecialChem

The latest additives from BYK-Chemie come from three different areas: BYK®-SILCLEAN 3710, an additive for reducing dirt adhesion, CERATIX® 8466, an aromatic-free wax dispersion for solvent-based basecoats with effect pigments and BYK®-P 9080, a new processing additive, provide new solutions for the paint and plastics industry.

BYK®-SILCLEAN 3710 is an additive for UV curable coatings in solvent-free systems. It is mainly designed to meet the requirements of furniture and industrial applications like reduced dirt adhesion, improved cleanability and water and oil repellency as well as increased surface slip.

CERATIX® 8466 is an aromatic-free wax additive for solvent-based basecoats that improves the orientation of the effect pigments and so reinforces the flip-flop effect. It prevents cloudiness and minimizes short wave defects, thereby improving the condition of the subsequent clear coat.

BYK®-P 9080 is a new processing additive that has been developed for Low Profile SMC and Class A SMC systems. Its excellent separation characteristics make the use of conventional mold-release agents redundant. The result is an improved surface quality of the molded part as well as better paint adhesion and bondability .
