Solvay introduces advanced UV stabilizer for thermoplastic polyolefin and reinforced plastics

October 13/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Solvay has presented its latest stabilization technology, CYASORB CYXTRA V9900 stabilizer to enable TPOs and reinforced plastics to meet government mandates for increased fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions, as per the company's press release.

The new regulations have created greater demand by the automotive industry for these materials to satisfy increasingly stringent performance requirements for weatherability.

Solvays next-generation CYASORB CYXTRA V9900 stabilizer meets all worldwide automotive UV weathering specifications. It also surpasses key automotive requirements such as low VOC emission, low fogging, low odor, and no interference with paint adhesion, and it provides a lower "cost-to-stabilize" benefit.

"The US Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard increases the mileage of new car models from 39 to over 50 miles per gallon by 2025, while in Europe OEMs must reduce CO2 emissions for new cars to 95 g/km on average from 2020," said Andrea Landuzzi, Global Marketing Director, Additive Technologies, for Solvays Technology Solutions global business unit. "The automotive industry is quickly turning to TPOs and CFRP to help them develop lighter, more fuel efficient automobiles with lower emissions.Solvay is committed to proactively engaging with our customers to understand their product specifications and help them - through our additive technology - to translate those specifications into successful products and applications."

While many stabilizers commercially available today offer some level of plastic protection, Solvays advanced CYASORB CYXTRA V9900 stabilizer takes protection a step further by delivering an optimal balance of processing and cost efficiencies with a high degree of performance durability, making it possible to deliver advanced solutions for plastics to meet tomorrows needs today.

CYASORB CYXTRA V9900 stabilizer joins Solvays world-class UV stabilizer portfolio, which includes CYASORB CYNERGY SOLUTIONS V Series stabilizers that protect the physical properties and aesthetics of automotive TPOs against UV light exposure, extreme temperatures and other environmental factors. These advanced stabilizer solutions can enhance TPO performance in a broad range of automotive applications, including bumpers, door panels, seat back covers, pillar moldings, door trims, instrument panels, head and side impact areas, fender liners and flares, tail light housings and cowl vents.

As MRC informed earlier, in late 2016, Solvay completed the sale of its 70.59% stake in Solvay Indupa to Brazilian chemical group Unipar Carbocloro, following the approval earlier this month of the Brazilian antitrust authority CADE.

Besides, in early July 2016, Solvay completed the divestment of its shareholding in Inovyn (London), bringing to an end Solvay's chlorvinyls joint venture with Ineos. Solvay received exit cash proceeds amounting to EUR335 million (USD370.7 million). The dissolution of the jv follows regulatory clearances from the relevant authorities.

Inovyn was formed on 1 July 2015 as a jv between Ineos and SolVin, a subsidiary of Solvay. Solvay and Ineos signaled their decision to end their chlorvinyls jv in March this year.

Solvay is headquartered in Brussels with about 27,000 employees spread across 58 countries. It generated pro forma net sales of EUR10.9 bn in 2016, with 90% made from activities where it ranks among the worlds top 3 players.
