  • Features

    • Effects rapid and uniform initial drying and good through-drying of the paint film
    • Improves color stability, gloss, film hardness and water resistance
    • Remains stable even if stored for over a year
    • Can be added to the binder or to paint already diluted with water, regardless of pH

  • Applications

    • Water-based paint systems based on binders that dry by oxidation

  • Dosage

    The exact amount required should always be determined in preliminary trial.

    Additions from 2 to 6 % Octa-Soligen® 123 aqua relative to binder (long-oil alkyd), equivalent to the
    following metal contents:

    • Cobalt: 0.024 – 0.072 %
    • Barium: 0.144 – 0.4322 %
    • Zinc:0.064 – 0.192 %

    Under certain circumstances, more or less than the recommended amounts may be used. However, the optimum amount needs to be determined in trials. To improve the drier stability of paints such as those containing pigments which readily adsorb driers, we recommend that 0.5 – 1.0 % Octa-Soligen® Calcium 10 is added prior to milling.

  • 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 removal of the product.
