Blagden has announced a new partnership with Everlight Chemical, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of high-performance UV absorbers and hindered amine light stabilisers.
Everlight, based in Taiwan, has a global reputation for its innovative range of specialty additives to protect coatings from yellowing and other problems caused by UV light. Last year, the organisation was recognised with an Industry Excellence Award from the Paint and Coating Industry in China.
“The Eversorb series, which provides UV protection in wide-ranging applications, represents an important class of effect additives for all our coatings customers,” explained Michael Austin, Blagden’s Coatings Business Line manager. “This is a critical field of specialty chemicals so we are delighted to pair with one of the global leaders with a strong focus on R&D and innovation. It’s a good fit for Blagden and reinforces our commitment to add value for customers.”
The series includes both UV light absorbers (UVA) and hindered amine light stabilisers (HALS). It delivers superior UV protection to enhance the performance of polymers in coatings, adhesives & sealants, inks, plastics and many advanced applications. The products prevent degradation problems such as discoloration, gloss loss, surface chalking and the loss of mechanical properties.
