Where polymers are subjected to various environmental factors such as UV light, humidity and oxygen, light degradation can cause problems such as yellowing, cracking and decreased efficiency.In order to maximize the longevity and service life of plastic materials, manufacturers incorporate UV absorbers and light stabilizers to prevent deterioration caused by UV light, to improve weather tolerance and increase efficiency in different applications.

Benzophenones, benzotriazoles and triazines are the major UV stabilizers used to provide protection against UV radiation in plastics.

The analyst estimates the value of the global UV stabilizers market was just under $REDACTED billion in 2019, and this is forecast to grow to more than $REDACTED billion in 2025.As a result of the global COVID-19 outbreak, many manufacturing operations were reduced in the first five months of 2020.

The supply chain was disrupted, and downstream plants were also shut to comply with trade restrictions imposed by regional governments. After the lifting of the global lockdown, the UV stabilizers market is likely to witness resumed demand in the second half of 2020.

Ultraviolet (UV) stabilizers are used to protect products from long-term UV corrosion effects caused by UV radiation.Various UV stabilizers are used depending on the substrate, the material’s expected working life and its susceptibility to UV degradation.

Due to excessive exposure to sunlight, surfaces tend to exhibit photodegradation changes such as color shift, chalking, splitting, and loss of physical properties. In order to counteract the adverse effects of UV radiation, UV stabilizers are used to fix the deterioration issues caused by exposure to sunlight.

Stabilizers are used to deter UV damage in plastics through the addition of chemicals such as benzotriazoles and benzophenones to guard against UV light.Stabilizers are added during the formation or molding of products.

Plastics and synthetic rubber are treated with UV stabilizers.

UV stabilizers are grouped into three primary types: UV absorbers, hindered amine light stabilizers (HALSs) and sockets.HALS are the most effective UV-induced degradation stabilizers, As they have ahigh degree of effectiveness and longevity due to the cyclic phase in which the HALS are regeneratedrather than ingested during the stabilization process.

HALS prevent the deterioration of polymers, butdo not absorb UV radiation. UV light is further subdivided as UV-A (lower wavelength, peaking at REDACTED nanometers) and UV-B (slightly higher wavelengths peaking at around REDACTED nanometers).

Polymer fabrics, mainly used in synthetic rubbers, coatings, adhesives and fabrics, and textile products, are continuously exposed to sunshine and fluorescent lighting, both of which have harmful effects on product life.In photodegradation, chemical bonds in a polymer are broken down and this leads to cracking, color changes, chalking, and loss of physical properties of the substance.

In order to increase the strength and to prolong the life of materials, it is important to add UV absorbers and light stabilizers to prevent deterioration caused by UV light. UV stabilizers improve performance and provide overall protection for the long and efficient life cycle of the material.
