Replacement Driers
DURA Chemicals has introduced the DriCAT 2700F Series of non-cobalt, high-activity oxidative driers that provide cure comparable to that of standard cobalt driers but with improved whiteness, longer wet-edge and other improvements to meet the required dried film properties of high-quality coatings.

Company Highlights Metal-based drier systems for waterborne coatings have been in commercial use for decades. These driers are designed for compatibility - ease of incorporation; stability -reduced loss of activity due to hydrolysis; and effectiveness - efficient drying, color retention and hardness development. These driers continue to be used in the newer alkyd emulsions and alkyd dispersions that are the future of waterborne alkyd technology. In addition, due to regulatory pressures to re-classify cobalt, the primary surface or oxidative drier, as CMR under REACh in Europe, new cobalt-free driers are also entering the market.

Dura Chemicals is actively developing the next generation of single metal and drier blends for use in this ever expanding area of coatings.
