  • Dosage

    The recommended dosage is 0.05 to 0.30 % of the total weight of the formulation depending upon the binder type and which property is being addressed. The exact dosage should be experimentally determined. Borchi® Gol LA 232 is easy to use and can be added at any stage of the formulation; however, we recommend adding it near the end of the formula. Do not exceed recommended dosages to prevent intercoat adhesion issues. Borchi® Gol LA 232 should be added as supplied into the system. However, premixes can be prepared using many common solvents. Blend with polyglycol ethers for water-based systems.

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weathering and light. Store at temperatures between 5 and 30 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each removal of the product.
