  • Features

    • Multi-metal drier that provides high reactivity
    • Low dosage of cobalt allows for progressive surface drying of the paint film
    • Homogeneous and even drying
    • Can be added to the binder or to paint already diluted with water, regardless of pH
    • Solvent: white-spirit containing <1 % aromatics

  • Applications

    • Formulations based on medium- and long-oil resins

  • Dosage

    Many tests have determined a reliable and extrapolatable method, which ever resin may be utilized.
    • Medium oil resins (40 – 55 %)
    We recommend, for this kind of formulation, the introduction of 2 – 4 g of Octa-Soligen® 141 Z as supplied per 100 g of resin solids.

    Example: Resin of 50 % introduced to 60 % of the formulation:
    • Solids content: 30 % x 0.04 = 1.2 % of Octa-Soligen® 141 Z, related to the total formulation
    • Long-oil resins (55 – 75 %)
    We recommend the introduction of 4 – 6 g of Octa-Soligen® 141 Z as supplied per 100 g of resin solids.

    Example: resin of 65 % introduced to 50 % into the formulation:
    • Solids content: 32.5 % x 0.06 = 1.95 % of Octa-Soligen® 141 Z, related to the total formulation.
    If there are strong proportions of drier-adsorbing pigments (due to their high specific surfaces) and/or resins with an oil-length superior to 70 % in this kind of formulation, it may become necessary to add Octa-Soligen® Calcium 10 (see separate data sheet). In this case the recommended dosage of Octa-Soligen® Calcium 10 is about 50% related to the dosage of Octa-Soligen® 141 Z.

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures below 50 °C.

    Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each removal of the product.
