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.
Borchers® Deca driers are based on metal salts of neodecanoic acids. Borchers® Deca Zirconium is available in the following grades:
Product Applications Borchers® Deca Zirconium 15 HS VOC-reduced and High-Solid coatings Borchers® Deca Zirconium 15 solventborne systems
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.
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.
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.
