  • Features

    • The balanced ratio of the various metal contents of Octa-Soligen® 173 yields optimum results in initial drying and through-drying
    • Excellent drier stability
    • Paints incorporating Octa-Soligen® 173 are characterised by better drying times particularly at high atmospheric humidity and low temperatures
    • Low viscosity
    • Outstanding brightness, good gloss and excellent hardness

  • Applications

    • All binder systems that that dry by oxidation, especially:
      • White and light-colored paints
      • Automotive refinish coatings

  • Dosage

    Applications Development trials showed the necessary addition of Octa-Soligen® 173 to be between 2 and 5 % relative to solid binder, depending on the binder and the pigment system. This is equivalent to a cobalt content of 0.024 to 0.060 %.

    When using pigments which retard the drying process such as carbon black or toluidine red, a higher dosage or special stabilization may be necessary. Octa-Soligen® Barium 12.5 and Octa-Soligen® Calcium 10 are suitable for this purpose.

    In paint systems which already contain zinc compounds, Octa-Soligen® 173 should be used in preference to Octa-Soligen® 203.

  • 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.
