Litho Dri CO 6 cobalt paste drier

Litho Dri CO 6 is a 6% Cobalt Metal drier that can be used to stimulate oxidation and polymerization of lithographic inks, thus causing them to cure, or "dry". 

For black inks, we recommend using 1.5-2.0% of Litho Dri CO 6 by weight. Color inks should have about 2%. We recommend the addition of 1 to 1.5 % of Litho Dri MN 6 in most litho formulas to obtain "bottom drying", too.

Care should be exercised in the storage and handling of Litho Dri. Keep containers tightly sealed to avoid "crusting".  Rags soaked to drying oils (ie: linseed, tung) that have been exposed to Litho Dri can spontaneously ignite if left in a heap for an extended period of time.
