Manganese drier for the ink industry
Appearance Brown liquid Metal content Mn: 5.90 – 6.20 % Non-volatile content >= 98.00 % ASTM D 1644 Viscosity 160.0 – 200.0 seconds Specific gravity 1.010 – 1.040 g/cm3(25°C) ASTM D 1963 Density NA
- Promotes surface and through-drying properties
- Usually used in combination with cobalt
- Can be used with secondary driers like zirconium, barium or zinc for complete drying of the paint film
- More suitable in pigmented coatings systems as it may cause discoloration in pale-colored or clear coatings
- Oil-based inks
In conventional alkyd formulations, the Manganese addition is between 0.01 and 0.05 % metal based on the vehicle solids of the coating and will vary depending upon the composition of the binder. In printing inks, a combination of Manganese and Cobalt driers is recommended. The additional amount of Cobalt is between 0.03 and 0.08 % based on binder solids. 6% Manganese Lin-All® PI Drier can also be combined with Zirconium and Calcium driers for optimum surface and through dry. The specific drier blend should be experimentally determined.
Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures below 50 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each use.
