  • Features

    • 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

  • Applications

    • Oil-based inks

  • Dosage

    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.

  • Storage

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