  • Features

    • Keeps paint film “open” to provide better through drying of quick dry and baking systems
    • Can prevent orange peel and wrinkling on paint film surface
    • Improves pigment wetting and dispersion
    • Can increase gloss and color fastness of coatings
    • Grind times may be reduced
    • Will not discolor paint film

  • Applications

    • Oxidatively cured solvent-based systems, including:
      • Architectural paints
      • Industrial coatings
      • Stains

  • Dosage

    In conventional alkyd formulations, the Zinc addition is between 0.03 – 0.50 % metal based on the vehicle solids of the coating and will vary depending upon the composition of the binder. The specific drier blend should be experimentally determined. Zinc drier can be added to the dispersion and/or in the letdown with other driers.

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures below 50 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each use.

  • Safety
