UVX UV Inhibitors
Ultraviolet (UV) stabilizers extend the useful life of products exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight or other sources of ultraviolet radiation.
We use UV inhibitors to protect the material by absorbing harmful wavelengths and/or interfering with the free radical formation of the polymer molecules from UV exposure.
Plastic products are also susceptible to oxidation; a molecular degradation that can occur both during the production process as well as throughout a product’s life.
PCCA has a broad line of AO and UV additive master batches coupled with years of experience in stabilizing most polymer systems for both FDA and non-FDA applications.
Consider using AOX and UVX additives anytime your product is exposed to outdoor and/or extreme processing conditions!
