We have Polythene that can resist sunlight effects. Our customers who store their products outside for prolonged periods of time use our Ultraviolet inhibitor treated polythene.
Polythene degrades when exposed to the ultraviolet rays found in sunlight. For short periods of time this won’t cause any issue but if your polythene is likely to be exposed for months or even years it’s important to use an additive called ultraviolet inhibitor otherwise known as UVI. UVI is blended with the polymer prior to extrusion and will prolong the life of the polythene. The treatment rate will depend on the level of expected exposure.
To find out more and for ultra violet resistant polythene prices get in touch with us we’d love to hear from you.
