< View all News (JP) allnex Introduces New Addition to Cobalt-Free Drier Portfolio 11 13, 2020 | Innovation ALPHARETTA, (November 13, 2020) - allnex, the leading supplier of specialty chemicals, offering a broad range of coating resins, additives and crosslinkers for use on wood, metal, plastic and other surfaces, is pleased to announce the newest addition to our ADDITOL® dry CF Series of high performance cobalt free driers for paint, coatings and Inks. The ADDITOL dry CF300 is being introduced to the already familiar cobalt-free drier portfolio, which includes as a primary drier ADDITOL® dry CF 100 that was designed to meet impending regulations against the use of cobalt containing paint driers. In addition, our portfolio also contains the complementary ADDITOL® dry CF200. The ADDITOL® dry CF300 is our newest secondary drier and is being added to provide increased formulator flexibility in designing next-generation coatings and inks. While our labs continue to provide products that allow our customers to comply to the ever-changing regulatory landscape, we continually push them to not only meet - but exceed - in providing safer and better performing technologies. As the market has confirmed, our R&D team was more than up to the challenge by inventing a newer and safer portfolio of products that outperforms existing products. In general, both secondary driers are an excellent option when used in conjunction with ADDITOL® dry CF100. However, when looking for a specific performance attribute, customers should look for ADDITOL® dry CF200 for a faster cure, while ADDITOL® dry CF300 provides improved through-dry and corrosion performance. When looking for something to be positive about in 2020…look to our new offering ADDITOL® dry CF300. And…..get ready for the launch of our newest cobalt free primary drier coming in Early 2021!
