Hostavin 3315 DISP is a 52% aqueous dispersion of a benzotriazole UV absorber, designed for UV stabilization of paints and clearcoats. This sustainable UV absorber is characterized by its broad compatibility, high resistance to migration and low extraction, making it particularly suitable for wood and plastics coatings. Hostavin 3315 DISP has been awarded with an EcoTain label resulting from its excellent toxicological profile.
