World UV Light Stabilizers Market - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014 -2020
UV light stabilizers protect plastic or wooden components from long-term effects of ultraviolet radiations. A polymer photo-degradation process occurs when a substance is exposed to UV radiation, resulting in deterioration of physical properties of the substance such as changes in color, loss of strength, elongation and tensile strength properties or chalking of surface. For instance, plastic or wooden chairs kept in gardens become brittle and lose their glossiness; chairs kept in open stadiums appear to be chalky or sometimes crack into pieces. Therefore, manufactures use UV light stabilizers to protect components that are exposed to UV radiation to prevent damage and avoid losses.
