The service life of greenhouse films is severely impacted by combined aggressive effects from intensive solar radiation exposure and increasing use of agrochemicals, such as sulfur and halogenated chemicals. Light stabilizers based on amino-ether HALS outperform standard HALS in terms of agrochemical resistance which enables superior UV protection and extends the lifetime of the greenhouse film.
Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, supports a step-forward in effective crop protection with the launch of innovative stabilization solutions to improve the durability of greenhouse films. Clariant offers film producers customized amino-ether light stabilization solutions based on Hostavin NOW® technology to achieve outstanding UV protection. The tailor-made solutions are available in a easy to handle granular form. The offerings include improved and safer processability compared to current available light stabilizers.
