Sun protection for polymers

Many polymer structures react to solar radiation – particularly in the UV segment.

The Polyfil developed UV additives primarily make use of two mechanisms to protect the polymers from the effects insolation. UVA- and UV absorbers protect by absorbing the UV radiation. By converting energy into heat, they prevent damage to the organic materials. The UV-stabilizers, on the other hand,
are made of additives that stabilize organic material against the effects of UV radiation.

Polyfil also offers unique inorganic UV blocking technology which helps protect packaged items from the damaging effects of UV exposure.
