Black pigment extends service life of plastics
- Up to 20 % better reflectivity
- Reduces urban heat generation
IR reflection lengthens service life of black plastics
Using the Bayferrox® 303 T black pigment can also extend the service life of a plastic component considerably as the thermal decomposition of a polymer matrix is reduced due to lower heat absorption. In addition, the difference between daytime and night-time temperatures is much lower. Plastic components are therefore less exposed to thermomechanical stresses that can lead to crack formation or even bursting.
In addition to outdoor applications, Bayferrox® 303 T’s characteristics make it suitable for use in the automotive industry, e.g. to color the dashboard, which is exposed to high and sustained solar radiation. Our pigment makes an effective contribution to reducing heat development in the passenger compartment
