Cobalt System Drier is a concentrated blend of metal carboxylates in mineral spirits, containing 1% cobalt, 13% zirconium and 4% calcium, and consists of an active, primary surface drier with two auxiliary through-driers blended in the ideal proportions for oil painting.
Cobalt is a primary oxidizing drier. Used alone and in thick applications of paint it has a tendency to cause wrinkling. Cobalt is generally used in combination with lead, zirconium, calcium or combination of these metals as a drying initiator.
Zirconium and calcium are effective auxiliary driers when used in conjunction with active driers, such as cobalt or manganese. Zirconium promotes the through drying of paint film. Zirconium is the most effective replacement for lead driers. It also improves gloss and color when substituted for lead. Calcium functions as a pigment wetting agent to improve dispersion of pigments in oil and alkyd vehicles thereby improving gloss and hardness of paint. When ground with pigments it minimizes loss of drying capability of other driers. It improves the action of cobalt driers and is used in conjunction with them and assists in the "through dry" of oil and alkyd paint.
Cobalt System Drier contains the active drier of cobalt blended with zirconium and calcium in the ideal proportions for oil and most alkyd paint. The lower dose of cobalt combined with the through drying action of zirconium and calcium promote complete and fast drying of the paint film.
The dropper bottle makes dispensing easy. Add two drops per 5 ml (about 1 teaspoon) of paint. Suggested use levels should be verified with tests.
