The Performance Chemicals business of ISP has introduced a new technology for protecting the integrity of coatings from damage caused by UV radiation. Called "SunCare Topcoat", this new technology is based on nano-scale emulsions of UV protective actives offering broad spectrum protection (290 to 380 nm) with outstanding performance in the UVA range. Tests have shown that this technology can be up to four times more effective than traditional waterbased coating UV-protection additives. This performance results from the use of dramatically smaller particle sizes of the UV active, with better particle distribution in the emulsion. Applications for the new product include exterior wood stains and varnishes, indoor wood coatings and wood care products, plasters, plastic and leather care products, UV blocking varnishes on printed materials and adhesives and bonding layers. The ingredient will be initially sold in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
