Sabo SpA announces double capacity of SABO®STAB UV 119 on-stream


Bergamo, Italy – October 9, 2013 – Sabo SpA announces today that it has finalized in Q3 2013 the capacity extension for its hindered amine light stabilizer (HALS) SABO®STAB UV 119. The expansion has doubled the capacity for the product at the existing, fully integrated manufacturing line.


SABO®STAB UV 119 is a high performance product designed for reduced interaction with agricultural chemicals, fillers, pigments, and other additives as compared to conventional HALS. The capacity expansion is being driven by increasing demand for the product in applications such as polyethylene (PE) based agricultural films, PE tapes for artificial turf, polypropylene (PP) fibers, and PP and TPO automotive parts.
