Just like our skin, the surfaces of buildings or steel structures like bridges or oil platforms can suffer from too much sunlight. UV rays have the power to degrade both the components of a coating and the surface it is supposed to protect. Clariant’s state-of-the-art coating solutions help to preserve and protect that well-being, providing e.g. dirt pickup resistance to prolong the proper looks of architectural coatings. Light stabilizer solutions contribute to making both the coatings and the substrates they protect more resistant to the highly exposed conditions they usually have to endure, like façade coatings based on styrene acrylic mixtures.
