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. These catalysts are free of cobalt, a metal that 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 the Borchi Dragon high-performance catalyst.
Borchers is a global manufacturer of additives, driers, accelerators and catalysts, with over 60 years of experience serving a wide range of coatings, printing inks and adhesives customers. Some of Borchers’ key product lines include Borchi Gen dispersants, Borchi Gel rheology modifiers, and Borchi Gol flow and leveling agents.
