Guangzhou, China -- BASF, the world's leading chemical company, will launch a new light stabilizer tailored for the Asian market at Chinaplas 2011, held in Guangzhou, China. The result of four years of development, Tinuvin® XT 100 protects film made from thermoplastic resins against overly fast degradation when exposed to UV light.

Tinuvin® XT 100 enhances the BASF portfolio of light stabilizers for resins used in agriculture.
