BYK Receives Innovation Awards
BYK, Wesel, Germany, is delighted to have received two accolades from China: Ringier Trade Media, the publisher of “Coatings and Inks China”, has recognized BYK in the categories “2017 Ringier Technology Innovation Awards - Coatings Industry” and “Innovators of the Year”.
The jury, comprising seven experts from the Chinese coatings industry, was impressed by a new additive from BYK: BYK-3565, which positively affects the wetting and leveling of the subsequent coating layer in multilayer coatings, was voted the winner in the category “2017 Ringier Technology Innovation Awards - Coatings Industry” by a large majority.
The jury was equally impressed by the work of the international and interdisciplinary research teams, with the result that the researchers could look forward to a further award, that of “Innovators of the Year”.
“We are thrilled with this double distinction because it confirms that we are on the right path of successfully meeting the various demands and challenges of the coatings industry with state-of-the-art additive technology and new concepts,” Dr. Horst Sulzbach, BYK’s CTO, states.
