The databook contains information on the most frequently used UV stabilizers. The information on each stabilizer included in the Databook of UV Stabilizers is divided into five sections: General information, Physical properties, Health and safety, Ecological properties, and Use & Performance. The data belong to over 100 data fields, which accommodate a variety of data available in source publications. The description of general sections below gives more detail on the composition of information.
In General information section, the following data are displayed: name, CAS #, Common name, Common synonym, Acronym, Empirical formula, Molecular weight, Chemical category, Mixture, Product contents, Moisture content, Silicone content, and EC number
Physical properties section contains data on State, Odor, Color (Gardner and Platinum-cobalt scales), Acid number, Active content, Ash contents, Acid dissociation constants, Base dissociation constant, Boiling point, Bulk density, Freezing/melting temperature, pH, Molar absorption coefficient, Physical state, Product form, Refractive index, Specific gravity, Solubility in water and solvents, Transmittance, Volatility
Health and safety section contains data on Flash point, Flash point method, Autoignition temperature, Explosive LEL, Explosive UEL, NFPA Classification, NFPA Health, NFPA Flammability, NFPA Reactivity, HMIS Classification, HMIS Health, HMIS Fire, HMIS Reactivity, HMIS Personal protection, UN Risk Phrases, R, UN Safety Phrases, S, DOT Hazard Class, UN/NA, ICAO/IATA Class, IMDG Class, TDG class, Proper shipping name, Food law approvals, Rat oral LD50, Mouse oral LD50, Rabbit dermal LD50, Inhalation rat LC50, Skin irritation, Eye irritation (human), Ingestion, First aid: eyes, skin, and inhalation, Chronic effects, Carcinogenicity, Mutagenicity, and TLV - TWA 8h (ACGIH, NIOSH, OSHA).
Ecological properties section contains data on Biodegradation probability, Aquatic toxicity LC50 (Rainbow trout, Bluegill sunfish, Fathead minnow, and Daphnia magna), and Partition coefficients (log Koc, log Kow).
Use & performance section contains information on Manufacturer, Outstanding properties, Recommended for polymers, Typical applications, Features & benefits, Processing methods, Additive application method, Recommended dosage, Davies scale, Concentration used, Food approval, Conditions to avoid, Costabilizers.
The book also contains introductory chapter in which general indicators of performance of UV stabilizers are discussed and a chapter containing information on the data fields included in the description of individual stabilizers.
