  • BYK C8013 coupling agent - BYK Additives

BYK C8013 coupling agent - BYK Additives
BYK-C 8013 is a coupling agent for carbon fibers. The additive is used in vinyl ester and unsaturated polyester resins that will be subsequently processed with carbon fibers into composite components. Strengths transverse to the fiber are considerably increased and therefore enable a greater design freedom. BYK-C 8013 shows a considerable increase in mechanical strengths particularly in hot curing processes such as SMC/BMC, pultrusion, prepreg or RTM.
