How to Balance VOC Reduction and Workable Paint Properties for Alkyds with New High Performance Catalyst Technology, Borchi® Dragon

This is a Past Webinar
Borchi® Dragon
VOC regulations continue to provide major challenges for coating formulators in many market applications, including architectural, wood finish, and industrial coatings.

Do you need to find the right balance between lowering VOCs and providing workable paint properties such as complexity reduction and wrinkling prevention from over application?

Attend this webinar to learn how to address these challenges with a new ligand technology that provides a sustainable, efficient solution for the drying of high solids, long oil alkyd resins. See comparative data on how this new technology performs versus cobalt-containing solutions. This new solution maintains performance in adverse conditions across multiple resin platforms, even at high dry film thickness. Discover how you can potentially reduce the overall costs of your coatings thanks to the elimination of complex drier packages.

Join the experts from Borchers to get all the insight on why new Borchi® Dragon ligand technology is an ideal solution for the continuing challenges of VOC reduction as it provides improved performance over unsustainable alternatives.
