  • Features

    • Developed for use in solvent-based systems that dry by oxidation
    • Ensures uniform drying of the paint film
    • The primary drier yields optimum surface drying
    • Improves hardness

  • Applications

    • Solvent-based systems based on medium- and long-oil alkyds that dry by oxidation

  • Dosage

    Application trials have shown the addition of Octa-Soligen® 161 to be between 2.5 and 5.0 %, calculated on the solid binder and depending on the binder and pigments used in the formulation.

  • 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.

  • Safety
