  • Features

    • Secondary drier that yields best results when combined with Primary driers like e.g. Cobalt or Borchi® OXY – Coat
    • Yields improved through-drying and storage stability, especially in systems based on low molecular weight resins
    • Improves hardness of coatings and reduces their tendency to yellow and wrinkle

  • Applications

    • Oxidative drying systems, including:
      • High-solid coatings based on low molecular weight binders
      • Conventional solvent-based and aqueous paints

  • Dosage

    In our experience, the percentage addition of lithium, calculated on the metal content per solid binder, is approx. 0.01 – 0.10 % Li. The exact amount required depends on the binder used and should always be determined in preliminary trials.

  • Storage

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

  • Safety
