Databook of UV Stabilizers, Second Edition, provides general indicators regarding the performance of UV stabilizers and includes details on the data fields included in the description of individual stabilizers. It provides details such as acronyms, molecular weight, odor, product form, transmittance, DOT hazard class, NFPA flammability/reactivity, aquatic toxicity, typical applications, processing methods, conditions to avoid, and much more for each stabilizer covered. Importantly, the Ecological properties section contains data on Biodegradation probability, Aquatic toxicity LC (Algae, Rainbow trout, Bluegill sunfish, Fathead minnow, Zebrafish, and Daphnia magna), Bioaccumulation potential, Bioconcentration factor, Biodegradation probability, Hydroxyl rate, and Partition coefficients (log Koc, log Kow). This book is an excellent companion to the Handbook of UV stabilizers which has also been published recently. Both books supplement each other without repeating the same information – one contains data another theory, mechanisms of action, practical effects and implications of application

Key Features

  • Discusses general indicators of performance of UV stabilizers and information on data fields included in the description of individual stabilizers
  • Includes five distinct sections, breaking content up into useful and manageable topics
  • Presents data that belongs to over 100 data fields, accommodating a variety of data available in source publications


Researchers in material science and mechanical engineering. Plastics engineers, product designers, and material scientists
