The Increasing use of Waterborne Coatings have Boosted the Market for UV Stabilizer.

Published By: IndustryARC Published On : 10-Oct-2017

Water borne coatings are now increasingly used across the globe owing to the stringent rules and regulations that are being posed by various governments because of the harmful effects on environment caused by using solvent borne coatings. Solvent borne coatings have been used in the world over a long span of time but these coatings leave an environmental footprint while it cures. So water borne coatings are used effectively as there is very minimal impact on environment. 

These coatings have been used effectively in all sectors starting from construction, infrastructure, automotive, industrial and many more. Coatings need to be very efficient as they have to protect the base material from the immense sunlight, wind and rain. Automotive and decorative coatings are being exposed to sunlight for most of the time thus gets degraded to easily because of the harmful UV radiation that causes photo-degradation. 

Thus UV stabilizer have come into picture making the coatings much more effective. UV stabilizer are of basically two types that are used majorly in coatings which are Ultra-violet Absorbers (UVAs) and Hindered Amine Light Stabilizers (HALS). These types of UV stabilizers are sometimes mixed to form blends making the stabilizer much more effective. UV stabilizers which are also termed as Light Stabilizers sometimes are mixed in very less amount up to 1.5% to 2.5% according to the requirement.

Automotive sector have been using it increasingly in its coatings for car decals as these help in maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the automobiles for longer duration. Although the pricing of these stabilizers are bit on the upper edge but its effectiveness have helped the market of UV stabilizer to spread all over the world. The increasing residential construction rate in Middle East nations along with the weather conditions in those nations which is highly sunny have further propelled the market of UV stabilizer. As coatings market as a whole is increasing globally which have simultaneously helped the UV stabilizers to make a good grasp in the market. Moreover there are many major players in the market such BASF SE, Clariant, Solvay and many more which invest a lot in their R&D owing to their large financial muscles thus coming up with much more efficient blends of UV stabilizer.
