Barium drier for solvent-based systems
Appearance Clear, low-viscous, colorless to yellowish liquid Metal content Ba: 12.20 – 12.80 % ISO 4619 (Acidimetric) Non-volatile content 53 – 63 % ISO 3251 (2g, 3h, 105 °C) Viscosity Max. 250 cPs ISO 3219 (A) (20 °C) Specific gravity NA Density 0.960 – 1.00 g/cm³ DIN 51757 (20 °C) Solvent White-spirit containing <1 % aromatics
- Highly efficient secondary drier
- Improves gloss
- Prevents adsorption of the primary driers at the surface of pigments and extenders, thus increasing the stability of the coating during prolonged storage
- Promotes through-drying
- Good pigment wetting properties
- Solvent-based systems based on alkyds and epoxy esters that dry by oxidation
The typical usage level is 0.1 – 0.5% barium metal, based on binder solids. The exact amount depends upon the formulation and should always be determined in preliminary trials. Borchers® Deca Barium 12.5 can be added during the grinding process to improve pigment wetting or as a post additive along with the other driers
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.
