Light stabilizers (HALS and UV-absorbers) > for the protection of plastics against UV radiation

BTC Europe supplies a broad product portfolio of light stabilizers. This includes several UV-absorber technologies such as benzophenones, cyanoacrylates, benzotriazoles and triazines as well as a versatile portfolio of low and high molecular weight hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS), which help to protect polymers against the photo-degradation.
Adding Chimassorb®, Tinuvin®, Uvinul® light stabilizers to plastics materials leads to a much reduced and significantly delayed loss of optical and/or mechanical properties and allows such plastics articles to be used in extended outdoor applications.  In fact, depending on the polymer matrix and the stabilizer system used, lifetimes beyond 15 years become possible.


Chimassorb®, Tinuvin®, Uvinul®


BTC’s Chimassorb®, Tinuvin®, and Uvinul® light stabilizers show best performances regarding their thermal stability, substrate compatibility, volatility, absorption range, or regulatory classification as needed. They are applied depending on the polymer in use as well as on the required end use article performance.


BTC’s light stabilizers are suitable for polyolefins, PVC, styrencis, elastomers, rubbers, and engineering polymers to help our customers meet the specific needs. Our stabilizers are used in the key plastics markets such as automotive, agriculture, building and construction, electric & electronics, packaging and textiles & fibres.
