Light and Heat Stabilizers for Improved Durability
On Demand Webinars
Regulatory authorities across many regions are reviewing the health hazards of light and heat stabilizer additives used in various applications, including adhesives and sealants. As a result of this ongoing scrutiny, some additives are being reclassified requiring the final products (adhesives or sealants) to be labeled as well which puts formulators and end users at higher health hazard exposure risk. In this webinar, we will first review the fundamentals of light & heat stabilizer additives (UV filter, radical scavenger and anti-oxidant). Then, we will briefly review the details of these regulatory changes for light stabilizer additves. Finally, we will examine a case study of SMP adhesive and sealant.
