Why use Tinuvin?

The BASF Tinuvin range contains two types of light stabilizers: Ultraviolet Light Absorbers (UVA) and Hindered-Amine Light Stabilizers (HALS), supplied individually or as blends. UVA filter harmful UV light and help prevent color change and delamination of coatings, adhesives and sealants. HALS trap free radicals once they are formed and are effective in retaining surface properties such as gloss and prevent cracking and chalking of paints.  The combination of these two chemistries is highly synergistic.


Tinuvin delivers durability and protection

Tinuvin light stabilizers offer solutions for nearly all types of coating, adhesive and sealant technologies, including hotmelt, solventborne, waterborne and UV curable systems.  The Tinuvin DW range, supplied as solvent-free, storage stable, low viscosity light stabilizer dispersions, incorporated by simple stir-in technique, offer the most convenient dosing and highest performance light stabilizer chemistries for waterborne coatings and adhesives – and are based on Novel Encapsulated Additive Technology (NEAT).


Peak performing coatings delivered by Tinuvin light stabilizers

Tinuvin Ultraviolet Light Absorbers (UVA) and Hindered-Amine Light Stabilizers (HALS), either alone or in combination, delivered as blends or easy to incorporate dispersions extend the service life of your coatings, adhesives and selants and protect your wood substrates.
