BYK Additives & Instruments

The core business of BYK Additives & Instruments is the interfacial chemistry in the application of coatings to a substrate. In the paper industry, many coating operations are carried out as finishing processes after sheet manufacture. Surface sizing, coating, printing, varnishing, and gluing are all stages of processing in which interfacial chemistry plays a key role. BYK Additives & Instruments supplies additives that control the application of coatings in order to stabilize the process or regulate specific technical properties. This mainly affects the uniformity of paper which is influenced through the floc structure of base paper.

BYK Additives & Instruments has developed, in conjunction with measuring instrument manufacturers and four universities, new methods of measurement for characterizing the paper surface, so that it may provide custom-made solutions in the value-added chain.
