Clariant Launches UV Stabilizer With Unique Benefits

December 6, 2010

Clariant has launched the UV stabilizer Hostavin N845PP for polyolefin (PO) compounds for automotive plastic interior applications. In addition to UV protection, the new grade offers low fogging and low migration performance plus processing efficiency. Hostavin N845PP protects PO-based components against sunlight and artificial light degradation. It remains within the plastic and does not migrate to the surface of the component when exposed to heat. As a result Hostavin N845PP has a reduced fogging and migration potential. This advantage is achieved through the grade’s compatibility with the PO matrix. Hostavin N845PP is a 2-in-1 active ingredient, which means that the UV stabilizer is enclosed in a non-traditional carrier.
