BYK Additives & Instruments
BYK Additives & Instruments is one of the world’s leading suppliers in the field of additives and measuring instruments. Additives are chemical substances which, when used in small quantities, improve product properties such as scratch resistance or surface gloss. They permit the rheological behavior of liquid materials to be adjusted, providing the optimum conditions for smooth-running manufacturing and application processes. The coatings, inks and plastics industries are among the main consumers of BYK additives. Yet with the exploration technology of oil/gas, the manufacture of care products, the manufacture of adhesives and sealants, and construction chemistry, too, BYK additives improve the product characteristics and production processes.
