BYK Additives and Instruments has launched a new wax additive that is characterized by its low melting point. CERAFLOUR 964 is immediately effective in extruding and baking and has good degassing properties, especially in β-HAA systems and low-temperature systems. Even with thicker coatings, the company says there are no pinholes. In addition, the additive does not affect surface tension, does not reduce gloss and does not form a wax film on the surface. Transparency is not impaired through use in clear coatings. www.byk.com
