BYK Additives & Instruments, a member of the Altana Group, announced a commitment to expand its facility in Gonzales, Texas. The company expects to invest $ 50 million to increase the company's capabilities and capacities for key products in the rheology additive portfolio.

Wallingford/USA — In addition to the expansion of production capabilities and several infrastructure upgrade measures, the company intends to develop a new R&D Center to house the global competence center for natural rheology.

BYK will increase its supply capability for its customers and facilitate the expected volume growth of diverse rheology additives. At the same time, the manufacturer aims to strengthen their position in the area of Garamite additives.

Garamite products are natural rheology additives. They ensure, for example, that coatings have the right viscosity and contribute to the lightweight construction of cars. With its thickening effect it replaces alternative conventional solutions while requiring less solvent to reduce both emissions and production costs, the supplier claims.
