Special Properties

ADDITOL dry CF100 is a ready to use universal Cobalt replacement drier designed to have excellent compatibility and fast incorporation in all solvent borne and waterborne alkyd paints.

- Well balanced leveling and accelerated through drying performance

- High hardness development

- Strong improved "long term dry" performance during paint aging

- Less discoloration versus Cobalt and other Manganese driers

- Very good anti-corrosion support in industrial DTM formulations

- Improved "anti-wrinkle" effect requires less addition of anti-skin agents

- Labeling free

Distinguishing Features

ADDITOL dry CF100 is the high performance twin accelerated Manganese for all clear and pigmented alkyd paints, while ADDITOL dry CF101 is based on single accelerated Manganese.

Suggested Uses

ADDITOL dry CF100 can be used as primary drier for all water dilutable, solvent borne and high solid oxidative drying alkyd resins. The innovative universal twin accelerated Manganese technology with unique ligand protection enables a labeling free use in high quality architectural and protective coating applications using oxidative drying alkyds.

The new products can be combined with all common secondary and auxiliary driers e.g. Aluminum, Barium, Calcium, Lithium, Potassium, Strontium, Zink or Zirconium.

ADDITOL dry CF100 uses a patented ligand protection which allows strongly improved "no loss of dry" performance in all alkyd paint systems.

Processing Information

ADDITOL dry CF100 can be directly added to the paint system at any stage of production.

Dosages of 0.3 to 0.9 %, calculated on solid binder, are recommended for medium solid and waterborne alkyds. Ultra high solid alkyds require up to 1,3 % calculated on solid binder.

In case of direct Cobalt replacement in existing formulations, ADDITOL dry CF100 can be used in FOD at same levels as a Cobalt 10 % solution.

Storage & Handling

Storage and Handling

At temperatures up to 25 °C storage stability packed in original containers amounts to at least 365 days.

Upon long term exposure to temperatures below 10 °C, the viscosity could be strongly increased and ADDITOL dry CF100 may become cloudy and show some crystallization. These effects are reversible and can be eliminated by warming up the product to 25 - 30 °C for several hours. After this treatment the product can be used without any restrictions.
