BYK Additives & Instruments, a supplier of additives and measuring instruments for the coatings industry, is the Diamond Sponsor of the 2015 Eastern Coatings Show. At Booth 102, BYK is focusing on aqueous systems as a technology of the future. Aqueous coatings are the modern alternative to conventional systems. In most cases, they are just as efficient and easy to process, and are cost-effective as well as environmentally friendly. As an added bonus, they pose no risk to the health of users or consumers.

BYK-1640 is a new product that is designed specifically to achieve high performance in aqueous systems. This additive is an affordable, polymer-based and VOC-free defoamer for many different aqueous systems. It is an excellent alternative to mineral oil-based defoamers.

For over 50 years, BYK Additives & Instruments has developed efficient and innovative additives that optimize coatings, printing inks, adhesives and sealants. BYK passes on this long-standing experience directly to its customers via a global network of technical consultants, laboratories and distributors.
