General Market Information:

Polyolefins are a group of thermoplastic materials made from polymers of olefins, which are hydrocarbons containing one or more carbon-carbon double bonds. The most common polyolefins are polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), which are widely used in packaging, construction, automotive, and other industries. Polyethylene is produced by polymerizing ethylene, while polypropylene is produced by polymerizing propylene. Both materials have high strength, flexibility, and chemical resistance, and can be easily molded or extruded into a wide range of shapes and forms. They are also lightweight, durable, and can be recycled multiple times, making them a popular choice for many applications.

HALS (Hindered Amine Light Stabilizers) and UV (Ultraviolet) absorbers are important additives used in the polyolefins market to enhance the durability and performance of polyolefin materials.

Polyolefins, such as polyethylene and polypropylene, are widely used in various industries due to their excellent properties such as high strength, flexibility, and resistance to chemicals and weathering. However, polyolefins are susceptible to degradation when exposed to UV radiation and other environmental factors, leading to discoloration, brittleness, and reduced mechanical properties.

To prevent such degradation, HALS and UV absorbers are added to polyolefin materials during the compounding process. HALS act as radical scavengers and stabilize the polymer by inhibiting the degradation reactions initiated by UV radiation. UV absorbers work by absorbing the UV radiation and converting it into harmless thermal energy, preventing it from reaching the polymer and causing degradation.

HALS and UV absorbers are especially important for outdoor applications of polyolefin materials, such as building and construction, automotive, and outdoor furniture and lifestyle products. By extending the service life and maintaining the appearance and properties of polyolefin products, HALS and UV absorbers help reduce maintenance costs and increase customer satisfaction.
