drier. The primary function of zinc drier is to keep the film surface open and promote the oxidation by 

blocking instantly cobalt activity and providing enough time for more atmospheric oxygen to diffuse in the entire film.

This property promotes hardening and prevents surface wrinkling increase drying time.

In addition, zinc also acts as wetting and dispersing agent and due to its light colour it does not discolour coatings.

Applications

Drier for solvent and water - borne coatings

As opposed to cobalt, it is important to be incorporated early in the formulation because it reduces the time of mixing and grinding and acts as a loss-of-dry agent
