In terms of its effect, manganese is the most important drier metal after cobalt.
Octa-Soligen® driers are based on metal salts of 2-ethylhexanic acid (octoates) or their isomers.
Octa-Soligen® Manganese is available in the following supply forms:
Product Applications Octa-Soligen® Manganese 10 solventborne systems Octa-Soligen® Manganese 10 (oil) printing inks Octa-Soligen® Manganese 10 HS VOC-reduced and High-Solid coatings Octa-Soligen® Manganese 6 solventborne systems Octa-Soligen® Manganese 8 (oil) printing inks
It promotes both surface and through-drying and is usually used in combination with cobalt. Manganese is suitable above all for pigmented coating systems as, because of its inherent color, it may cause discoloration in pale-colored or clear coatings. High atmospheric humidity severely inhibits the effect of manganese.
It is used in conventional architectural paints, wood coatings, printing inks and other industrial coatings.
In our experience, the percentage addition of manganese, calculated on the metal content per solid binder, is approx. 0.01 – 0.05 % Mn. The exact amount required depends on the binder used should always be determined in preliminary trials.
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.
