  • Features

    • Secondary drier mainly used with primary driers such as Borchi® OXY – Coat, Borchers® Deca Cobalt or Borchers® Deca Manganese
    • Based on metal salts of neodecanoic acids
    • Promotes through-drying primarily by the formation of coordination bonds
    • Better properties in terms of color, yellowing and stability compared to other secondary driers

  • Applications

    • Solvent-based systems

  • Dosage

    The typical usage level is 0.05 – 0.30 % zirconium metal, based on binder solids. The exact amount depends upon the formulation and should always be determined in preliminary trials.

  • 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 use.

  • Safety
