Octa-Soligen® Iron 7/8 HS is a primary drier for oxidative drying systems.
Appearance Brown liquid Metal content 7,30 – 7,70 % Borchers 200-02 Viscosity Max. 300 mPa.s (20°C) ISO 3219 (A) Density 0,980 – 1,020 g/cm3 (20°C) DIN 51757 Solvent Fatty acid ester
In comparison to other primary driers like e.g. Cobalt or Borchi® OXY – Coat, iron is less efficient at ambient temperature. However, when blended with other driers or at elevated temperatures, efficiency will be increased. In oxidative drying baking enamels the optimal catalytic effect is given above 130 °C.
Octa-Soligen® Iron 7/8 HS can be used in any oxidative drying baking enamels. Iron driers are dark brown.For this reason Octa-Soligen® Iron 7/8 HS only can be used in dark coloured baking enamels or in primers. Due to ist yellowing effect it cannot be used in white coatings. Octa-Soligen® Iron 7/8 HS additonally can be used as an adhesion promoter in anti-corrosive paints.
In our experience, the percentage addition of iron, calculated on the metal content per binder (solid), is approx. 0.1 – 1.0 % Fe. The exact amount required depends on the binder used.
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.
