Siccatives without lead and barium

For normal fast drying up of an oleic cover, it is necessary to use special drying-up-accelerating additives, active factors of which are metals dissolved in oils in a form of salts forming ions. Earlier there were used widely fast-drying substances based on lead and barium that except of their quite high effectiveness possess also a very high toxicity in relation to humans. That is why we do not use these metals in our products. We replaced them with absolutely safe metals, some of which, for example, are contained in the stainless steel used for food: manganese, zirconium, calcium, cobalt, iron etc. Besides, those metals content in our products is not more than 0.01%.
