Americhem Inc., Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, now offers combinations of its nDuramax™ family of
ultraviolet (UV)-stabilizing masterbatches designed for outdoor man-made-fiber applications
including geotextiles and other geosynthetics, outdoor carpeting, synthetic turf, awning fabric,
and marine covers, among other applications.
The combinations blend UV stabilizers that are good for both short- and long-term exposure.
Americhem reports use of the combinations results in better tensile strength retention and longer
product life compared to using individual stabilizers.
