Description

Iron is slightly effective in coatings which dry by oxidation at room temperature. It usually only develops its catalytic effect at baking temperatures above 130 °C. Iron driers are very dark in colour. Therefore it is used in oil-based baking systems for cans and in dark-colored baking systems.

  • Properties

    Iron is a primary drier which improves, above all, the through-drying. It only develops its full effect at high temperatures (> 150 °C).

  • Applications

    Octa-Soligen® Iron can be used in all coatings which dry by oxidation and are stoved at high temperatures.Because of its very severe tendency to yellow, iron can only be used in pigmented coatings.

    It also acts as an adhesion promoter in anti-corrosion coatings.

  • Dosage

    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.

  • 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.
