What is BYK-1790?

BYK-1790 silicon-free, is recommended for various adhesive types such as solvent-free, UV-curable, and ESH-curable adhesives, including pigmented and unpigmented ones, as well as reactive polyurethane hot melt adhesives. It doesn’t compromise the adhesive properties and is particularly suitable for acrylate-based binders in UV curing. Moreover, it prevents foaming in the production of reactive polyurethane hot melt adhesives, even at high viscosity, thereby enhancing production efficiency with shorter evacuation times.
