Anti-skinning agent for oxidatively drying coating systems and pastes with reduced VOC content

  • Physical Characteristics

    AppearanceClear, colourless to brown liquid
    ViscosityMax. 45 mPa·s ISO
    3219 (A) (20 °C)
    Density0.86 – 0.90 g/cm3
    DIN 51757 (20 °C)
    SolventSoluble in organic solvents such as
    alcohols, ethers, xylene, white spirit, butylglycol, printing oils; slightly soluble in water

  • 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
      • Solvent-free oxidatively drying
      • High solids paints
      • Environmentally friendly
      • VOC-reduced

  • Dosage

    Ascinin® Anti Skin 1240 can be added to the system in any formulation step. A preliminary dilution is not suggested. We recommend its addition in a final production step after adding the siccatives to the formulation. The required amount of Ascinin® Anti Skin 1240 depends on type of binder and quantity of the used driers. Usual amounts for coating systems based on alkyds are approx. 0.2 to 0.8 % by weight on total formulation. In case of substitution of Butanonoxime we recommend starting with adding half the amount of the substituted Butanonoxime and then optimize the addition rate on basis of the obtained results.

  • Storage

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