Light Stabilizers / UV Absorbers

Light stabilizers / UV absorbers combat the degradation that plastics can undergo under the effects of sunlight, UV rays, heat and reaction with oxygen. The changes witnessed in a plastic can range from discoloration to formation of cracks. Addition of light stabilizers / UV absorbers can extend the life and improve the appearance of the plastic. Selection of a light stabilizer / UV absorber largely depends upon the substrate to be protected, its envisioned functional life and its sensitivity to photodegradation. The most commonly used light stabilizers in plastics are hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS); the most common UV absorbers are benzotriazoles, benzophenones and organic nickel compounds.
