UV resistance in thermoplastic compounds refers to the plastic’s ability to resist degradation due to Ultraviolet radiation absorption. Without UV resistant additives, thermoplastics can change in appearance and structure when exposed to ultraviolet light, causing brittleness, cracks, color shifts, or warping over time. RTP Company offers a variety of solutions to help ensure your thermoplastic application is protected against the damage caused by ultraviolet light, thereby increasing the longevity and maintaining the desired aesthetics for your application.
Join RTP Company color experts as they discuss the science behind UV resistance for thermoplastic compounds, including how they can benefit your application, and what to keep in mind during the design phase. This webinar is for engineers, molders, sales representatives, and purchasers who want to better understand the mechanics of ultraviolet light and the importance of resin selection in maintaining UV resistance for your application.
