Litho Dri MN 6 Manganese paste drier
Litho Dri MN 6 is a 6% Manganese Metal drier that can be used to stimulate oxidation and polymerization of lithographic inks, thus causing them to "dry".
For black inks, we recommend using 0.5-1.0% of Litho Dri MN 6 by weight. Color inks should have about 1%. We recommend the addition of 1.5-2 % of Litho Dri CO 6 in most litho formulas to obtain "top 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.
