Germany, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The products are marketed
under the tradenames NANOBYK-3600 and NANOBYK-3601.
They have been developed to improve scratch and wear
resistance of UV-coatings that can also be applied to
plastics (e.g. as a top coat for Vinyl Floorings). NANOBYK-3600
is a water-based dispersion of nano-Alumina particles.
At levels of 0.5% to 5% being applied to water-based
UV-coatings NANOBYK-3600 improves significantly the
scratch resistance of those coatings. NANOBYK-3601 is
a dispersion of nano-Alumina in Tripropylene Glycol
Diacrylate (TPGDA) developed for 100% UV curable coatings.
Again by adding 0.5% to 5% to the coating formulation
mechanical properties of the coatings are improved significantly.
These products have jointly been developed by BYK-Chemie
and Nanophase Technology Corporation (NTC). Following
the equity investment of ALTANA Chemie end of March
2004 this is the first product launch based on the worldwide
strategic alliance of the two companies. "We are
pleased to announce the availability of the first nanotechnology
products based on the knowledge and the capabilities
of BYK-Chemie and NTC. Since there is more and more
interest being shown in these products by different
customers all over the world we see this very early
product launch as a proof for the value of the partnership
for both our customers and the two companies involved,"
says Dr. Roland Peter, Managing Director of BYK-Chemie,
BYK-Chemie and Nanophase Technology Corporation expect
further products to be introduced throughout 2004 covering
other application properties that can be achieved using
