launched an algae product in the form of innovative blue color made from Spirulina with light stability improved by up to 40%.
The Santoprene TPV B260 family of products is also said to deliver improved flow properties, abrasion resistance and ultraviolet (UV) light stability. While delivering better sliding properties than the organic additives, the silicone technology enhances bonding performance to dense EPDM rubber, a critical factor in overmolding, according to the company.
Easy processing Renol compounds and masterbatches for engineering and high temperature resins provide heat and light stability, and flame retardancy, while maintaining critical flow properties in parts like SMT connectors.
If a package allows exposure to light or if sensitivity to light can be imparted during handling and forecasted use, the product should undergo light stability testing.
Some of those improvements, he says, include "stabilizer combinations in polyolefins for long-term thermal stability with less or no sulfur-containing additives and light stabilizer combinations resulting in enhanced light stability by boosting the performance of HALS with specialty UVA." The former reduces emissions and odors, the latter volatile organic compounds and fogging.
The new PolyAd Epoch|UVTM series develops long-term light stability and pushes results into what earlier had been considered unattainable levels of colour and gloss retention for outdoor products and carpet fibres.
In addition, the product offers significantly improved light stability over standard vegetable extracts, making a perfect alternative to synthetic Sunset Yellow (Yellow 6) having a very bright and transparent colour hue.
Q-Lab manufactures and sells affordable, easy-to-use, and low-maintenance weathering, light stability, and corrosion test equipment.
"They ensure an even mass coloration of the material, since they stay affined to the wood fiber, and stand out due to their great shine as well as their color and light stability."
This injection molding grade is said to provide significantly improved processability, resulting in higher yields and shorter cycle times, while maintaining its high heat and light stability.
Even though many consumers experience doubt when trying to choose the perfect hue, formulators must confidently select the colors they will offer to the marketplace, while also offering a range of finishes and performance features consumers demand for today's paints: high hiding, paint plus primer, low VOC, scrub and stain resistance, light stability, and more.
However, the requirements for increased light stability combined with ancillary properties such as no blooming of the additives and excellent paint adhesion persist.
