Techno Brief: UV/Light Stabilizers for Adhesives

The action of light can lead to irreversible damages in adhesives and sealants properties, at the edges of the adhesive bond or if the substrates are permeable to light. This UV/Light Stabilizers guide is designed to help you understand more about the use of UV/Light Stabilizers in the adhesives & sealant industry, focusing on how to reduce the damage done by light, oxygen and heat to adhesives.

Why use Light Stabilizers?

Damage caused by the action of light plays a role that should not be underestimated in many different areas of life. The destructive effects of light can lead to irreversible changes in organic materials, such as adhesives.

Although adhesives are generally located between two substrates that are being bonded together, damage can still occur in such cases at the edges of the adhesive bond or if the substrates are permeable to light which may produce discoloration or the loss of adhesive properties.

This UV/Light Stabilizers brief is designed to help you understand more about the use of UV/Light Stabilizers in the adhesives & sealant industry, focusing on how to reduce the damage done by light, oxygen and heat to adhesives.
