Borchi® OXY-Coat 1410 is a metal-based cobalt-free drier for high solids alkyd-based coatings. This high concentration, low VOC cobalt replacement additive is a unique catalyst that is applicable in a wide range of coating systems that dry oxidatively.

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’s low VOC, eco-friendly impact make this solution a perfect drier for high solids coatings.

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

As  cobalt-free drier for high solids coatings, applications include wood, industrial and architectural coatings, as well as 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.
