Products and Services

Functional recycling economy with RECYCLOBYK

By stabilizing the plastics during processing, BYK’s recycling additives significantly improve the quality of the recycled materials. They subsequently facilitate new high-grade applications for the used plastics.

Thus, for example, RECYCLOBYK 4372 improves the recycling of HDPE material that can be used, for example, in pallets and bottle crates designed for outdoor use. This is achieved by means of targeted restabilization of the polymer matrix.
