  • Features

    • Improves the storage stability of solvent-based oxidatively
      cured coating systems, printing inks and pigment pastes by
      preventing skin-formation on the surface of the coating while
      still in the container
    • Controls surface dry retardation and keeps the film open
      longer to ensure deeper penetration of oxygen to lower film
      layers which promotes through dry and improves flow
    • Can eliminate excessive dry time retardation with phenolics
      or the toxicity of oximic compounds

  • Applications

    • Printing inks
    • Clear or pigmented systems
    • Coatings
      • Solvent-based
      • High solids oxidatively cured
      • Environmentally friendly

  • Dosage

    Ascinin® Anti Skin 0444 can be added to the system at any stage of the manufacturing process but it is highly recommended to add it as the final addition after driers. Pre-dilution is not recommended. The amount of Ascinin® Anti Skin 0444 depends on the type of binder and quantity of the driers used.

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures between 5 and 30 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each removal of the product.
