Manganese drier for water or solvent-based systems

  • Physical Characteristics

    AppearanceBrown liquid
    Metal contentMn: 8.90 – 9.10 %
    Non-volatile content50.00 – 65.00 % ASTM D 1644
    ViscosityA-5 to C ASTM D 2373
    Specific gravity1.004 – 1.028 g/cm3(25°C) ASTM D 1963

  • 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

    • Oxidatively cured systems, including:
      • Architectural paints
      • Industrial coatings

  • 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. 9% Manganese Hydro-Cure® III 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.
