How to find products equivalent to BYK-378?

BYK-378 silicone surface additive for aqueous, solvent-borne and solvent-free systems increases surface slip and significantly reduces surface tension at low doses. Low foam stability. This product is good, but due to the problematic nature of foam stabilisation, process times need to be altered somewhat, so many manufacturers are looking for better products than BYK-378 for performance reasons, environmental considerations or supply chain diversification. This guide will introduce you to BZ-650 Polyether Modified Leveling Compound, a better surface additive than BYK-378.

Understanding the Origin of BZ-650 Polyether Modified Leveling Compound

In the world chemical additives industry, the leading companies are located in countries such as Germany, Japan, China, South Korea and the United States. However, the most rapid development is in China. At the end of last century, EFKA, BYK, TEGO and other leading brands entered the Chinese market, which made China’s coatings and ink additives industry develop rapidly in more than 30 years.

In order to better participate in China’s huge market competition, Chinese additives companies continue to introduce new high-performance products, performance and price more and more advantageous, and gradually in the world has a growing influence.

One of the most influential companies in the Chinese market – Camen Chemical is one of the representatives. They not only have a R&D team led by more than 20 PhDs, but also co-operate with many famous universities in research and development. Throughout the Chinese market, there are nearly 1,000 coating and ink manufacturers cooperating with them, the reason is that their products not only have good performance and stability, but also have a very advantageous price, and more importantly, they have been constantly innovating.

For example, the equivalent BYK-378 surface additive we are looking for in this article can be replaced with Camen Chemical BZ-650 Polyether Modified Leveling Compound (click here to view), which has better performance and more features than BYK-378.
