The Right Light
Long-term protection against UV radiation as well as improved thermal stability are bestowed by methylated sterically hindered amines (HALS) from BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany. Designed for automotive interior parts, light stabilizer Tinuvin 880 also features increased scratch resistance, and eliminates mold deposits and stickiness. Due to its UV resistance, it is expected to be used in automotive exteriors as well.
Tinuvin XT 55 improves the very same properties for fibers and films, especially for polyolefins. One example is the production of polyethylene (PE) monofilaments for artificial turf.
