Dispersions, Resins and Additives

UV absorber and light stabilizer blends 

TINUVIN® 5000 series and other TINUVIN blends with UV absorber (UVA) and hindered amine light stabilizer (HALS) technology for solvent-based and aqueous formulations.

The TINUVIN 5000 series and other TINUVIN blends offer synergistic combinations of UVA and HALS technology against surface defects while also bolstering color and gloss retention in coating applications. These easy-to-handle additives are compatible and soluble in most solvent-based systems, and meet all performance demands of automotive, industrial and architectural applications. The series also contains subgroups with specific properties for suitability with wood, plastic and metal substrates or exceptionally high pH or high thermal conditions.

Regardless of what type of system you wish to formulate and issue you face, we can support you with solutions that significantly enhance the performance efficiency and service life of your final product. The light stabilizer blends combine two main technologies: filters that block ultraviolet radiation and scavengers that “hunt down” and eliminate free radicals within the coating to master a complex array of challenges.

At BASF, you will find experts who understand your specific needs and are glad to support you in finding the right rheology modifiers for your formulations.
