Benefits of Cobalt-Free Driers

As cobalt is increasingly being labeled as a toxic metal around the world, Borchi® OXY-Coat 1410 boasts as a curing solution that does not contain any toxic metals. It also allows for low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in coating formulations. This cobalt-free solution is a sustainable alternative to cobalt and other metal carboxylates in high solids coatings systems.

Benefits include faster dry times, improved gloss and haze, brighter whites, non-yellowing, and the ability to be used in adverse conditions (thus extending coatings season windows).


Borchi® OXY-Coat 1410 is ideal for use in wood, industrial, and architectural coatings, as well as in printing inks.

  • Dosage

    All resin systems are unique and will require the level of Borchi® OXY - Coat  1410 to be optimized for best cost and dry. We recommend la ladder study of 0.05 – 3 % Borchi® OXY - Coat  1410 as supplied on resin solids. Please keep in mind that too much Borchi® OXY - Coat  1410 might inhibit through dry. Borchi® OXY - Coat  1410 should be added as one of the last ingredients before the Anti-Skinning agent.
