How to Protect Polymers from UV Degradation

When polymers are exposed to various environmental factors like UV light, heat, oxygen, light degradation would happen, causing problems, such as yellowing, cracking, reducing the performance and function. In order to enhance the durability and to extend the service life, it is necessary to add UV absorber and light stabilizer to prevent degradation caused by UV light, improving weather resistance and reliability in various applications. Everlight Chemical presents 3 major types of UV absorber: Benzophenone, Benzotriazole and Triazine to choose or blend to create your own effective solutions for light stabilization.
