Zirconium Octoate

Zirconium 2-EthylHexanoate

  • Zirconium driers become widely used due to legislation restriction for lead limitation
  • Zirconium octoate is an efficient through/auxiliary drier which is generally used in combination with cobalt and calcium
  • Unlike lead, zirconium is a poor pigment wetting and dispersing agent, therefore the combination with calcium is necessary
