Photo-degradation of polymer is mainly caused by radicals induced by UV irradiation. Intimate binding to the host polymer of hindered amine, which can quench radicals and activated oxygen, makes the function of hindered amine permanently efficient.
Radicals are induced by not only UV irradiation but also water and oxygen located on the surface of pigments. As illustrated the following equations, water and oxygen molecules are converted into hydroxyl and perhydroxyl radicals by TiO2-photo- catalyzed oxidation. Therefore, the exclusion of water from paint films restrains the Photocatalyzed oxidation and photo-degradation of polymers.
UWR based paints demonstrated the same level of weatherability as fluorocarbon based paints due to the synergistic effect of hindered amine binding to the host polymer and hydrophobic properties of UWR.

Lineup of UWR

- GENERAL TYPES -

Water - borne UWR E Series (Emulsion)
Solvent - based UWR S-2000 Series (Ambient cure & Thermosetting)
UWR S-5000 Series (Thermoplastic)

- SPECIAL TYPES -

Solvent - based UWR C-3000 Series (Organic - inorganic hybrid)

UWR C-3000 Series are organic-inorganic hybrid type polymers combined with HALSHYBRID polymer and organo-colloidal silica. These polymers show excellent weatherability and dirt removability.
* Solvents for HALSHYBRID POLYMER can be replaced to the other solvents which are not HAPS.
