Solvay’s new high molecular weight (HMW) hindered amine light stabilizer (HALS) capacity is now online, the company said.

‘We decided to expand our capacity to better meet the needs of our customers,’ said Ning Chen, vice president, polymer additives. 

According to the company, its HMW HALS technology protects polyolefins against degradation caused by exposure to light and thermal forces, extending the lifetime of plastics in outdoor applications.
