CV120 and CV100 - Cost Effective Alternatives to Cobalt Driers
The historical volatility of cobalt metal prices is unlikely to reduce in the future as more cobalt is used for batteries in electric vehicles. DriCAT CV 120 and CV100 have significantly lower cobalt content then traditional cobalt based driers yet due to DURA’s patented activating technology they have the same or better catalytic performance resulting in excellent drying times and superior crosslink density.
The cost of the DriCAT CV products is lower than that of the equivalent traditional Cobalt drier and the pricing volatility is reduced due to the lower Cobalt content. These products are reach compliant and direct w/w replacements for Duroct Cobalt 12% (CV120) and Cobalt 10% (CV100) and there is no need to change anything else in the paint formulation including through driers.
