Team behind DisperBYK-2200 receive the BYK Advance innovation prize

13 February 2015

The high-quality stabilisation of phthalocyanine pigments and carbon blacks in solventborne coating systems, printing inks and inkjet inks was the driver for developing DisperBYK-2200. To meet the challenges of very small particles – accompanied by a very large specific surface area – and various surface treatments of the phthalocyanine pigments, the development of a new type of polymeric structure had become necessary.

This led, for the first time in the company’s history, to the large-scale realisation of a solid wetting and dispersing additive and utterly convinced the jury, who awards the internal innovation prize each year.
