Firm Debuts Coatings Stabilizers Line
A new range of stabilizer products for the coatings industry has been introduced by polymer stabilizers manufacturer SONGWON Industrial Co. Ltd. (Ulsan, South Korea).
Specifically designed to meet the needs of this increasingly demanding industrial sector, the new antioxidants (AOs), UV absorbers (UVAs), and hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS) were designed to effectively protect coatings against the negative effects of light and heat in wood substrates for furniture and flooring, as well as applications such as automotive, transport, decorative, architectural and many others, the specialty chemicals company says.
SONGNOX CS is the company’s diversified portfolio of AOs, which ranges from primary phenolic AOs to secondary thioethers and phosphites. The products were developed to prevent thermal degradation in various manufacturing conditions including high-temperature processing, curing and stoving, the manufacturer notes.
The SONGSORB CS portfolio includes a comprehensive range of UV stabilizers, according to the company. The UVA range reportedly spans from the traditional benzophenones (SONGSORB CS 81) to the benzotriazoles, known for their extensive scope of application (SONGSORB CS 1130, SONGSORB CS 928), and also includes the most recent, high-performing triazine UV absorbers (SONGSORB CS 1577).
With its extensive HALS experience, SONGWON’s portfolio of SONGSORB CS also provides customers with a broad range of HALS products to help them protect their coatings from surface defects or damage from exposure to light. The range includes liquid all-rounder products (SONGSORB CS 292), solid products (SONGSORB CS 622, SONGSORB CS 770), as well as low-basicity products (SONGSORB CS 5100).
In order to support customers with powder coating applications, SONGWON has developed special HALS features with triboelectric charging properties (SONGSORB CS 144, SONGSORB CS 111), it notes.
