BYK-1794

MITM02198
ITM03924, ITM03925

Emission-free and silicone-free polymeric defoamer for solvent-borne, solvent-free, high solids, and UV systems.

Applications

Liquid Coatings

BYK-1794 is an emission-free defoamer and air release agent compliant with AgBB (German committee for the health-related evaluation of building products) and French standards. The additive is particularly recommended for high-solids and solvent-free systems on the basis of epoxy, PUR, polyaspartics, and UV systems. It is suitable for pigmented and non-pigmented systems, has no effect on surface properties or transparency, and is effective during production and further processing. The additive consists of 100% solids and is solvent-free.

BYK-1794 is used in thick layer systems, such as coatings for flooring. BYK-1794 offers excellent compatibility with solvent-free coatings for ballast tanks, tank interiors, etc. It is also highly effective in 100% polyurethane and polyaspartic acid ester systems for pipeline and concrete coatings as well as other solvent-free coating systems fora high degree of corrosion protection. In typical solvent-borne coil coating systems (e.g. polyester melamine or PURs ystems), BYK-1794 is very compatible and produces good, spontaneous defoaming effects. Excellent results can be achieved in UV systems for wood and furniture coatings.

Recommend Use:
  • Architectural coatings
  • Coil coatings
  • Protective coatings
  • Wood and furniture coatings
