Octa-Soligen® 27 is a very versatile combination drier developed to meet the technical requirements of the coatings industry.
Octa-Soligen® 27 produces optimum drying characteristics in all medium-oil and long-oil alkyd resins.
Appearance Clear, low-viscous, violet liquid Metal content Ca: 1.90 – 2.10 %
Co: 1.2 – 1.40 %
Zr :5.50 – 5.90 %
Total: 8.60 – 9.40 %
Non-volatile content 37 – 45 % ISO 3251 (2g, 3h, 105 °C) Viscosity Max. 60 m Pa·s ISO 3219 (A) (20 °C) Density 0.910 – 0.950 g/cm³ DIN 51757 (20 °C) Solvent White-Spirit containing < 1% aromatics
The composition of Octa-Soligen® 27 yields an ideal synergy between the metals. Cobalt ensures rapid surface drying whereas zirconium, a secondary drier, promotes through-drying. Calcium stabilizes the drying power and develops a synergy with the other metals.
The combined action of these different metals ensures uniform drying which improves the hardness of the paint film.
Octa-Soligen® 27 is entirely stable and can be used in medium-oil and long-oil resins.
Application trials have shown the addition of Octa-Soligen® 27 to be between 4 and 6 %, calculated on the solid binder and depending on the binder and pigments used in the formulation.
If using highly adsorbent pigments with a high specific surface, it may be necessary to also use Octa-Soligen® Calcium 10 (see technical information on Octa-Soligen® Calcium 10).
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.
