UV rays cause plastic to degrade. This video explains how plastic UV protection is enabled. A masterbatch is one of the raw materials used in plastic production. A color masterbatch is an additive that is used for coloring plastics.
The masterbatch granules are mixed with their used-based polymer to produce and add color to the final product.
A mono-batch consists of color pigments. A combi-batch contains color pigments and additives. One of the additives is a UV stabilizer, which is used to protect the base polymer from UV radiation. When plastic is exposed to sunlight, it affects the color, lifespan, and shape of the product. The UV stabilizer can be added separately to the base polymer or provided in the formulation of the masterbatch.
The color is protected by choosing pigments with high lightfastness and weather fastness. UV stabilizers protect the base polymer and not the color pigments in the masterbatch. High-quality color pigments and an effective stabilizer protects the plastic. Energetic consumption (KLY) is determined by length and exposure to sunlight. The KLY determines how long the product is protected from UV radiation. Get top-quality items with plastic uv protection so they last longer when used outdoors.
