These two new BYK developments implement two requirements which were hitherto very difficult to combine in the application of aqueous anti-corrosive and furniture coatings, according to the company.
Firstly, the new wetting and dispersing additives display “excellent” stabilization of pigments and fillers, per BYK.
Secondly, they have no negative influence on the anti-corrosive properties of aqueous single-layer coatings and/or the stain resistance of aqueous furniture coatings, per BYK.
Due to their special chemical structure, DISPERBYK-2080 and DISPERBYK- 2081 cause significantly less hydrophilicity than conventional wetting and dispersing additives do in the cured coating systems, per BYK. This leads to longer-lasting corrosion prevention, and red wine, coffee or tea are also no longer able to leave any unpleasant stains, per BYK.
