UV and Light Stabilizers

Cesa™ Light Additives

Protect Against UV Degredation

Plastics and ultraviolet (UV) light don’t always mix. UV light not only accelerates yellowing or color fading; it can also degrade physical properties and cause brittleness. Cesa™ Light Additives help prevent this deterioration and keep your products looking and performing better for longer.

The Cesa Light Additives portfolio includes different types of light stabilizers to provide efficient protection against UV degradation to products used both indoors and outside.  They are available globally for use in a wide range of thermoplastics in concentrated pellets or beads. These unique additives have been shown to have excellent results in a number of processes, including injection molding, extrusion, thermoforming, and vacuum forming.
