Manufacturers And Exporters Of Calcium Octoate
Calcium being an auxiliary drier, has little drying action in itself but is very useful in combination with active driers like Cobalt & Lead Octoate.
In vehicles that show poor tolerance for lead, calcium can replace part of the lead with a larger amount of calcium to prevent the precipitation of the lead & maintain drying efficiency. Calcium is often used to replace lead where toxicity of lead must be avoided. Calcium is also useful as pigment wetting & dispersing agents & help to improve hardness & gloss & reduce “Silkins”. When ground with drier adsorbing pigments, calcium minimizes loss of dry by being preferentially absorbed.
