Many people have turned to epoxy resin to improve the aesthetic of their art and furniture. However, there is still a handful of individuals out there who are still skeptical of this method. This is mainly due to its vulnerability to the sun and its rays. Maverick Composites is here to say there is no need to be scared any longer! We are proud to introduce UV resistant epoxy. We feature top of the line UV resin that you want to buy today no matter where you are in the United States.

Why Should You Turn To The UV Resistant Approach?

Once cured, epoxy resins change with exposure to UV light. It seems like no matter where the source of light, it will still be affected. Even fluorescent indoor light can cause it to change. The most noticeable change is with respect to color. When UV light hits a resin coating, it degrades the epoxy polymers, causing ambering. This makes for a yellow coloring. Even resin that may have started out crystal clear will soon turn a yucky yellow hue. This process and outcome are inevitable unless something is done to the chemical make-up of the resin formula to address this. That is where we come in.

Introducing UV Resistant Epoxy and HALS

Many epoxy resins on the market include a UV stabilizer that is used to protect against yellowing, as well as other problems that epoxies are prone to. An UV stabilizer is necessary and effective. However, keep in mind that when it comes to the yellowing issue. A UV stabilizer merely delays yellowing, it does not stop it completely.  Another additive altogether is required to really combat yellowing. This is called something Hindered Amine Light Stabilizer (HALS). Unlike UV light stabilization, Hindered Amine Light Stabilization (HALS) actually interrupts the yellowing process at the outset, making it much more difficult for yellowing to occur. HALS has been demonstrated in numerous test cases over the years to be extraordinarily useful in protecting against yellowing.

Our UVPoxy will produce a high-build, crystal-clear, durable finish that resists yellowing, fading, and cracking over time. UVPoxy is specially formulated to resist yellowing caused by sunlight and other ultraviolet light sources and to resist scratching, water, and alcohol to provide a long lasting maintenance free protection for your surface. It is a high-performance epoxy also used for bar tops and table tops which produces a high build crystal clear durable finish that will never yellow, fade, or crack over time.
