Ciba Specialty Chemicals Corp. claims its new light stabilizer often can double the lifetime of flexible PVC compared with standard additives.
The Tarrytown, N.Y., company claims its Tinuvin XT833 imparts exceptional weatherability to flexible vinyl and alloys.
The additive gives better property retention than conventional products used in exterior PVC applications such as roofing membranes, awnings, signs, flooring and pool liners, according to Ciba Specialty.
Tinuvin XT833 maintains initial appearance, tensile and elongation properties and physical integrity, even in acidic environments.
