A solution of 1,10-phenanthroline in a water-miscible solvent that is used as a drier-accelerator in water-borne paints and coatings that dry by oxidative polymerization. ACTIV-8 HGL functions as a chelating agent for the primary driers cobalt and manganese. It helps to improve dry times and to stabilize water-reducible alkyd and alkyd emulsion paints against loss of dry on aging.
