Borchi® Dragon: New Sustainable High Performance Paint Catalyst from Borchers
October 8, 2020 | News
Borchers has recently launched Borchi® Dragon, a high performance catalyst for high solids, long oil alkyd coating systems. The solution is designed for use in solvent-based architectural, wood, and general industrial coatings.
Throughout the last few years, Borchers has developed high performance catalyst technology that allows for low VOC paint formulations. Adding to their sustainability is that these catalysts are free of cobalt, a metal which is facing increasingly stringent regulations around the world.
In addition to Borchers’ established Borchi® OXY-Coat line of high performance cobalt-free drier catalysts, Borchi® Dragon meets the market need for sustainable high performance cobalt-free catalysts in high solids, long oil alkyd resin formulations. Benefits include improved dry times, non-yellowing performance, storage stability, and complexity reduction. Coatings containing Borchers’ high performance catalysts can be used in any weather condition.
Borchers also has a line of MEKO-free anti-skins such as Ascinin® and Borchi® Nox. The recently launched Borchi® Shield is a MEKO-free anti-skinning agent synergistically designed for optimum anti-skin performance when used in combination with Borchi® Dragon high performance catalyst.
