BLS® 2056 is an effective light stabilizer for a wide range of adhesive systems based on EVA, SIS, SBS and PUR. Developed as a versatile stabilizer BLS® 2056 can be used in molded items and extruded sheets. In flexible parts based on TPE or PVC BLS® 2056 can be used in industrial and building and construction applications. Due to its inherently low color contribution BLS® 2056 is ideal for use solvent based coatings.
- Improved regulatory acceptance compared to UV-328 benzotriazole
- Multiple stabilization chemistries provide excellent light stability
- Strong absorbance across the majority of the UV spectrum
- Suitable for use in combination with optical brighteners
Guidelines for Use
Typical recommended loading levels range between about 0.1 and 2% by weight, depending upon the polymer, processing conditions, end use, and other performance requirements. The appropriate loading must be determined by testing in the specific polymer, adhesive, or sealant system. BLS® 2056 may be used in combination with other additives, including UV absorbers, hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS), benzoate light stabilizers, antioxidants (primary and/or secondary types) and optical brighteners.
