Manganese driers are highly viscous red-brown solutions of metallic soap of manganese with various acids and chelating agents in different solvents. Manganese is not only an active surface drier but also contributes polymerization greater than cobalt. Manganese is the drier of choice for printing inks among other applications. It is used in conventional architectural paints, wood coatings, backing enamels and in the paints where colour is not a restraint. EGE KIMYA offers different manganese-based driers for various applications.
