  • Features

    • Widely used secondary drier with cobalt, manganese and calcium
    • Based on metal salts of 2-ethylhexanic acid (octoates) or their isomers
    • Promotes through-drying primarily by the formation of coordination bonds
    • Better properties in terms of color, yellowing and stability compared to other secondary driers

  • Applications

    • Solvent-based systems

  • Dosage

    In our experience, the percentage addition of zirconium, calculated on the metal content per solid binder, is approx. 0.05 – 0.30 %. The exact amount required depends on the binder used and should always be determined in preliminary trials.

  • 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.
