Ali Hite Solves Leveling Issue, Wins BYK Award

 

We are ecstatic to announce that Ali Hite has won the BYK Innovative Applications Award for her synergy of CLAYTONE AF, LAPONITE RD and BYK-378 in a tire shine formulation. This is the second BYK award win in a row for Palmer Holland as Greg Liedtke won the previous summer.


A customer of Ali’s uses the Claytone AF and Laponite RD in their tire shine formulations. Ali introduced BYK 378 as the customer is working to reduce surface tension in a high molecular weight, polyalkylene glycol-based coating for application on tires.


Her customer evaluated this material in their system and confirmed it does help solve the leveling issues that are occurring.  The sample has been approved, the BYK-878 is now being used in conjunction with the organoclay products in the tire shine system.


Congratulations on your award, Ali!
