Thick and sluggish or thin and dynamic? These properties come to light in paints and coatings and also in building material products such as plasters and adhesives.

In Moosburg, Bavaria, BYK develops and produces a variety of such additives: organoclays for solvent-borne systems and hydroclays for aqueous products.
Such rheological additives help, among other things, to adapt construction chemical products precisely to customer and market needs. Thus, the ceiling paint sticks to the ceiling and does not drip onto the face of the painter during application.
