Tinuvin® NOR® 356 

Novel Tinuvin® NOR® light and heat stabilizer for agricultural plastics

Helps certified organic farmer to produce in a sustainable way

By using the energy from the sun in a world with less arable land and increasing water scarcity, Plasticulture contributes significantly to producing more and better food all year to meet the growing population needs. Prominent examples of Plasticulture’s high efficiency to use natural resources in a sustainable manner include: greenhouse covers which keep uniform temperature and humidity for continued food production; mulch films and irrigation pipes which reduce water consumption; and silage films which store livestock food in a cost-effective way.


The development of BASF’s next generation Tinuvin® NOR® is the result of BASF’s extensive competency in light and thermal stabilization combined with its deep knowledge of agricultural market requirements. Tinuvin® NOR® 356 helps certified organic farmers produce in a sustainable way by increasing productivity, improving crop quality and reducing plastic waste for them, which can lead to higher earnings. This solution protects and extends the lifetime of agricultural films that are exposed to very high levels of UV radiation, heat and crop treatments such as elemental sulfur, and the compounds approved in certified organic farming to prevent plants diseases and fertilize the soil.
