UV Stabilizer Masterbatches

UV Stabilizer Masterbatches

Significance of UV Stabilizer Masterbatches:

Plastic products tend to discolor and degrade in presence of light. The UV radiation has the power to break the chemical bonds within the polymer, and this process is termed as photodegradation. This might finally result in changes in colour, cracking, loss of polymer’s physical properties, and chalking. So, to keep these damaging effects of UV rays at bay, UV stabilizers for plastics play the vital role. UV Stabilizers for plastics will lower the degradation level related to harmful UV rays.

There are two major categories of UV stabilizers:

1. The first one is UVA or ultraviolet light absorber
2. The second one is HALS, or hindered amine light stabilizes

HALS can be noted to be the most effective version of UV stabilizers against any light-related degradation of polymers. By using this stabilizer at the lowest concentrations, you can increase the stabilization levels in polymers. Longer life and high retention levels are achieved by using different type of monomeric & polymeric HALS. Here, the HALS can be seen regenerated and not consumed during the stabilization process.

UV light will be within the range of 280 to 400nm, and you can find visible light within 400 to 800nm. Later the UV light gets subdivided under UV-A and UV-B. The intensity of sunlight along with its composition is subject to vary as per atmospheric effects, latitude, and more. So the designing of the UV masterbatches is very critical based on the retention requirements and the area /location of use. Some of the other points to be taken care of are the other ingredients added along with stabilizers like colorants, flame retardants, Antioxidants etc. Application information like food contact, pesticide use etc. also play a vital role.

AddKan UV stabilizer additive Masterbatches are produced considering the above points with ultimate consistency to ensure the end product performance. But proper information like UV ray intensity (based on geographical location), article’s thickness, exposure time, and life expectancy are important to decide the type/types of additives & the final dosage. In many cases combination of additives gives synergistic effect.
