Mn Neodecanoate - VALIREX Mn 8 Neo D60

2-EHA-Free Manganese Drier with 8% Metal Content

VALIREX Mn 8 Neo D60 is a manganese neodecanoate at 8% Mn, dissolved in D60. It is mainly used as an ink drier in sheet fed heat set applications. Next to its drier functionalities in ink, the product is also active as a primary drier in paints & coatings. Manganese driers improve the surface drying of the coating and possess some through drying properties. Combination with cobalt results in very well-balanced surface and through drying properties. At higher application temperature, the product can replace traditional cobalt-based carboxylates.
