Our single metal driers: The TEXIDRI™ Series
The allnex’ TEXIDRI™ series allows for maximum customization. Depending on your formulation needs, you can combine the calcium-, cobalt-, zinc-, or zirconium-based driers to suit your application. Learn more about the advantages of the TEXIDRI™ series from our experts.
While both TEXIDRI CALCIUM 5% Tallate and the TEXIDRI ZINC 12% will keep the film matrix open allowing oxygen in and solvent out in the early drying process, the calcium will facilitate pigment dispersion and enhance grind and tinter acceptance, while zinc will prevent wrinkling and skinning of the film.
In addition, although TEXIDRI COBALT 12% SUPERCO will produce less discoloration in wet paint and upon ageing of dried paint, its less toxic substitute TEXIDRI ZIRCONIUM 12% will offer good through dry and color and improved gloss.
