Iron Octoate is used in backing finishes, since it promotes rapid drying by polymerization. It is an excellent wetting agent for carbon black & iron oxide. It prevents adsorption of driers on the surface of the pigments & increases gloss. In air dry finishes, it is useful in eliminating film tackiness of paints containing a high percentage of non- drying oil component such as fish oil.
