Solvay Introducing Two UV Stabilizers to Brazilian Market at Feiplastic 2019
Saddle Brook, NJ, April 18, 2019 --- Solvay will introduce two UV stabilizers to the Brazilian market at Feiplastic: CYASORB CYNERGY SOLUTIONS® M528 for injection and blow molded applications and CYASORB® CYXTRA®V9900 for automotive interior and exterior parts.
CYASORB CYNERGY SOLUTIONS® M528 is specifically designed for general injection and blow molded PE articles, satisfying critical performance requirements for durable products. This powerful stabilizer offers long-term UV protection and thermal resistance. It can be used at lower loadings than traditional stabilizer chemistries and in a wide variety of polymer types, allowing more formulation flexibility and production efficiency to its users and maximizing value.
Solvay will also introduce the Brazilian market to CYASORB® CYXTRA® V9900. The product is the first in Solvay’s next-generation UV stabilization technology platform, delivering an optimal balance of processing and cost efficiencies with a high degree of performance durability to polyolefins. CYASORB® CYXTRA® V9900 stabilizer enables TPOs and reinforced plastics to meet government mandates for increased fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions. It meets all worldwide automotive UV weathering specifications and surpasses key automotive requirements such as low VOC emission, low fogging, low odor and no interference with paint adhesion.
“The plastics industry continues to search for solutions that enable plastics to perform better and last longer, while remaining cost-effective,” said Dr. Andrea Landuzzi, global marketing director for Solvay’s Polymer Additives business. “Solvay’s latest offerings provide industry-leading lifetime extension for durable materials and facilitate the plastics industry’s various efforts to improve recyclability and develop closed loop systems. M528 and V9900 reinforce our commitment to build on our 60 plus years of experience in UV stabilization to deliver innovative solutions that address key customer and societal challenges.”
