Driers for the future – Ege Kimya innovative regulatory compliant and cost effective products that improve catalytic performance

Time: 14:40 - 15:00

Theatre: Arena 4

Synopsis

Il mercato europeo richiede oggi smalti alchidici, resine poliestere insature e inchiostri offset in grado di rispondere alle odierne esigenze normative.

Oltre ad un’ampia gamma di essiccativi su base neodecanoato in grado di sostituire in modo efficace l’attuale tecnologia su base ottoato, EGE KIMYA ha arricchito la linea EGEDry® Prime – dedicata al cobalto polimerico – con il prodotto EGEDry® Prime LV Pro, il primo nel suo genere ad avere un contenuto di cobalto al 6% e a viscosità ridotta.

La gamma di essiccativi secondari oggi comprende anche lo Stronzio Basico, molto più efficiente dello Zirconio sia a basse che ad alte temperature e in presenza di umidità.

Infine, verrà presentata la nuova serie EGECat® ClearCo – specifiche miscele di metalli a basso contenuto di cobalto sviluppate per resine poliestere insature e smalti alchidici.

 

 

The regulatory demands for the European market are increasingly restrictive and pose significant challenges for the formulation of alkyd based coatings, unsaturated polyesters and offset printing inks.  EGE KIMYA’s range of neodecanoate driers have been expanded and are shown to be effective replacements for the standard octoates.  The EGEDry® Prime range of polymeric cobalt products now includes EGEDry Prime LV Pro – the first of this technology to have a cobalt content of 6% with the added feature of reduced viscosity.  The range of through driers now includes overbased strontium – a more effective drier than zirconium especially at low and high temperatures and high humidity.  The most recent development from the EGE KIMYA R & D is the development of the EGECat® ClearCo series.  These new products are specific blends of metals with low cobalt content, originally developed for specific UPR applications, that are proven to be very effective in alkyd coatings.

I will expand more on the development and show the test results of these products.  This presentation is a snapshot of the commitment EGE KIMYA makes to the continuous development of products in the area of metal carboxylates.
