Unprotected thermoset composites do not have good performance characteristics when exposed to UV radiation.
Within months of outdoor exposure, chalking occurs, fiberglass becomes exposed and the appearance becomes visibly and structurally degraded.
While UV stabilizers have been used in the industry to slow this phenomenon, they sometimes add only marginal longevity to the life of the substrate.
Through years of investment research into UV stabilization science technology, Chromaflo Technologies has created technology that solves this problem. This research has resulted in a leap forward in the UV protection of composites and the creation of UVSolutions® technology. By partnering with our customers to optimize the specific polymer systems, we have added many years to the lives of their products.
UVSolutions® technology is continuously evolving. Recent advancements have enabled the use of this technology in commercially available unpainted truck boxes, which provides 12 years of UV durability through Xenon Arc weathering and natural weathering testing. Other commercial applications for this technology include light housing units, grill components, tactile transit components and various pultrusion applications.
