Lead-free combination drier for paint systems


Octa-Soligen® 69 is a drier combination developed to satisfy the demands of the paint industry for suitable environmentally acceptable, lead-free drier systems. Octa-Soligen® 69 provides paint formulators with a lead-free combination drier which is almost universally usable and yields optimum drying results in all binders which dry by oxidation.

  • Supply Form

    Octa-Soligen® driers are based on metal salts of 2-ethylhexanic acid (octoates) or their isomers.

    Octa-Soligen® 69 is available in the following supply forms:

    Octa-Soligen® 69solventborne systems
    Octa-Soligen® 69 HSVOC-reduced and High-Solid coatings

  • Properties

    Cobalt effects rapid surface drying while zirconium functions as an active auxiliary drier, promoting through-drying. The balanced ratio of the metals cobalt and zirconium in Octa-Soligen® 69 yields optimum results in respect of initial- and through-drying.

    Octa-Soligen® 69 is of low-viscosity, readily meter able and particularly suitable for white and light-colored paint systems.

  • Applications

    Octa-Soligen® 69 can be used in all binder systems which dry by oxidation and is particularly suitable for white and light-colored paints. Cloudiness and precipitation do not occur.

  • Dosage

    Experiments have shown that the necessary amount of Octa-Soligen® 69 should be between 0.25 and 1.00% relative to the solid binder, depending on the binder and the pigment system. This is equivalent to a cobalt content of 0.015 to 0.060 %.

    When using pigments which retard the drying process such as carbon black or toluidine red, a higher addition rate or special stabilisation may be necessary. Suitable stabilisers are Octa-Soligen® Barium 12.5 and in particular Octa-Soligen® Calcium 10 which, in conjunction with cobalt and zirconium, further accelerates the drying process and provides long-term drier stability.

  • 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.
