  • Features

    • Improves gloss
    • Prevents adsorption of the primary driers at the surface of pigments and extenders, thus increasing the stability of the coating during prolonged storage
    • Promotes through-drying
    • Good pigment wetting properties

  • Applications

    • Solvent-based systems based on alkyds and epoxy esters that dry by oxidation

  • Dosage

    In our experience, the percentage addition of barium, calculated on the metal content relative to solid binder,is approx. 0.1 – 0.5 %.

    The exact amount required depends on the binder used and should always be determined in preliminary trials.

    Octa-Soligen® Barium 12.5 can be introduced during the grinding step to improve pigment wetting, thus at the end of process at the same time than other driers.

  • 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.
