Octa-Soligen® 173

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Borchers
Cobalt, barium and zirconium carboxylates in mixture dissolved in white-spirit containing less than 2% aromatics. Acts as a combination drier. It is of low-viscosity and easy to use. Cobalt effects rapid surface drying. In conjunction with cobalt, barium improves through-drying. At the same time, it prevents the adsorption of primary drier, thereby increasing drier stability during long-term storage. Zirconium acts as an active auxiliary drier. It improves both through-drying and surface drying. The balanced ratio of the various metal contents yields optimum results in initial drying and through-drying. As a result of the action of the barium, this drier has excellent drier stability, rendering use of additional drier stabilizers unnecessary except in the case of critical pigment systems. Paints incorporated with it are characterized by better drying times particularly at high atmospheric humidity and low temperatures. Paint films dried with it exhibit very good through-drying, outstanding brightness, good gloss and excellent hardness. Cloudiness and precipitation do not occur. Promotes faster through-drying of paints dried by application of heat. As a result, the paint remains removable with tape (e.g. in the case of automotive refinishing paints) for a shorter period. Usable in all binder systems which dry by oxidation and is particularly suitable to white and light-colored paints. Recommended for solvent borne coatings. Application includes automotive refinishing, wood and general industrial paints. Dosage rate lies within 2-5% relative to solid binder, depending on the binder and the pigment system. This is equivalent to a cobalt content of 0.024 to 0.060 %.
