Borchers® Deca Zirconium is a highly efficient secondary drier. Zirconium driers are the most common secondary driers improving through dry in oxidatively cured coatings primarily by the formation of coordinative bonds.

  • Supply Form

    Borchers® Deca driers are based on metal salts of neodecanoic acids. Borchers® Deca Zirconium is available in the following grades:

    Borchers® Deca Zirconium 15 HSVOC-reduced and High-Solid coatings
    Borchers® Deca Zirconium 15solventborne systems

  • Properties

    Zirconium is mainly used in combination with primary driers like e.g. Borchi® OXY – Coat, Borchers® Deca Cobalt or Borchers® Deca Manganese based driers. In comparison to other secondary driers, zirconium has better properties in terms of color, yellowing and stability.

  • 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.
