Coating stabilization
Ciba Specialty Chemicals
Basel Switzerland
Ciba’s Novel Encapsulated Additives Technology (NEAT) for coating stabilization enables the equivalent level of protection in waterborne coatings to that attained with high-performance stabilizers in solventborne systems. The first products to be launched in the NEAT range are hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS) and UV absorbers. Ciba TINUVIN DW low-viscosity aqueous stabilizer dispersions can be stored for prolonged periods without sedimentation, are easy to dispense and meter and can be simply stirred into paint and coatings without the addition of co-solvents. TINUVIN DW dispersions are suitable for wood coatings, architectural and construction applications, plastics and glass coatings, general industrial paints, and transportation coatings.
