Strontium driers are ideal auxiliaries for systems containing no heavy metals. Combined with primary driers such as cobalt or manganese, they yield optimum and uniform drying.

  • Properties

    As it is a secondary drier, strontium is used only in combination with a primary drier such as cobalt or manganese. It enhances through-drying and thus ensures better film properties.

    The product can be used in all alkyd system and, especially, in systems with high solids content. It is also suitable for applications in extremes of temperature and humidity.

  • Dosage

    The average addition is between 0.2 and 0.5 % strontium, calculated on the solid binder. The exact addition for individual formulations must be determined by preliminary trials.

  • 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.
