Drier Pb 30% is a solution of 2-ethylhexane acid salts in the white spirit and acts as a catalyst for drying of paints and varnishes manufactured on the base of alkyd resins, vegetable oils and other binders that are curing by oxidative polymerization.

Lead drier (Pb 30%) contributes to the drying of paint and varnish materials by the layer thickness, which is particularly important in case of big thickness of coating. It reduces formation of cracks on the layer of paint. It is recommended for use in primers and materials containing active solvents. Works slowly, but forms active and pigment adsorption-resistant driers mixed with metals of "surface" drying: cobalt and/or manganese.
