Ca Neodecanoate - VALIREX Ca 5 N Neo D60

2-EHA-Free Calcium-based Paints & Coatings Drier with 5% Metal Content

VALIREX Ca 5 N Neo D60 is a 2-ethylhexanoate-free calcium-based metal carboxylate with 5% Ca content. It is a neutral chemistry. Calcium carboxylates are very useful in combination with primary driers such as cobalt and manganese. They help to improve hardness and gloss, and reduce skin-formation, silking and blooming. They are also useful as pigment wetting/dispersing agents and loss-of-dry inhibitors. Calcium carboxylates are not recommended for coatings subject to dry under adverse conditions (water sensitivity).
