Sustainable UV & Light Stabilizers
UV Absorbers and Light Stabilizers make up an important part of Chitec's business, and Campbell & Co. carries a complete selection. Chitec has been busy producing the next generation of UV Absorbers and Light Stabilizers.
UV Absorbers allow your coating or plastic to endure UV rays from sunlight. Radiation is turned into heat, preventing the degradation of appearance and physical properties due to exposure to sunlight. Chitec offers four basic categories of UV Absorbers:
|• Benzotriazole-Based UVA
||• Benzophenone-Based UVA
||• Triazine-Based UVA
||• Formulated UVA
Chitec is also developing next-generation alternatives for UV-328. This popular UV stabilizer has seen peek use of 3,000 tons per year worldwide. Recently it was listed as an SVHC (Substance of Very High Concern). The European Union will soon restrict the use of UV-328 and Chitec offers both short and long-term alternatives to UV-328. Both have now been REACH certified, going through the strictest chemical licensing process in the world.
