Troymax™ Calcium 10NA
Carboxylate from Synthetic Acid
Troymax™ Calcium 10NA is a calcium carboxylate of mixed synthetic organic acids stabilized in a mineral spirits solvent. Calcium carboxylates, by themselves, have minimal effectiveness as driers but are very useful when used in combination with active driers such as Cobalt and Manganese. Calcium driers help to improve hardness and gloss as well as to reduce skin-formation, silking, and blooming. They are also useful as pigment wetting/dispersing agents and loss-of-dry inhibitors. Calcium carboxylates are not recommended for coatings subjected to drying under adverse conditions.
