Jasmin Bisch (Marketing Communications) 

Brussels, October 07, 2013 – Allnex introduces ADDITOL® XW 6560, an ultra-low-VOC combination metal drier designed for easy incorporation into low VOC waterborne alkyd paints.

ADDITOL® XW 6560 has excellent compatibility with highly modified alkyds and other metal driers enabling fast incorporation in any stage of the paint manufacturing process. Furthermore, ADDITOL® XW 6560 has improved stability and paints formulated with ADDITOL® XW 6560 show lower seeding tendencies during drier incorporation.

“With much stricter VOC regulations coming into force in the US in the near future, Allnex has taken the initiative to develop a metal drier that will not only help formulators of alkyd coatings be compliant, but is also easy to use and offers optimum performance,” says Philippe De Micheli, Global Marketing Director Liquid Coating Resins and Additives. “In addition, because ADDITOL® XW 6560 can be blended with other commercial single metal driers, if necessary, formulators can customize performance for a specific system.”

ADDITOL® XW 6560 will be available worldwide as of November 2013.
