BYK is a leading supplier in the field of additives and measuring instruments. Additives are chemical substances which, even in small quantities, improve product properties such as mechanical or flame-retardant properties. Our high-quality processing additives and coupling agents make resin infusion more efficient and enable the production of lighter and stronger composite structures or an optimized fiber wetting both in thermoplastics and duromers. This leads to an improved processing of, for example, carbon fibers, and it produces a good surface quality. BYK additives also make their contribution with respect to indoor emissions. The additives allow the flow behavior of liquid materials to be adjusted in such a way that optimum conditions are achieved for smooth manufacturing and application processes.
The coatings, printing inks, and plastics industries are among the main consumers of BYK additives. But BYK additives also improve product characteristics and production processes in the exploration technology oil & gas, the manufacture of care products, the manufacture of adhesives and sealants, and in construction chemistry. Testing and measuring instruments from BYK effectively evaluate the quality of color, gloss, and appearance as well as the physical properties of paint, plastic and paper products, and they are an important part of quality control.
As a globally operating specialty chemicals company, BYK has 14 production sites in Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, the USA, and China. Today, the company employs around 2,000 people worldwide and invests 8% of sales in R&D.
