Tartan offers the Chiguard 5530 UV Absorber

Chiguard® 5530 belongs to the family of substituted benzotriazoles which protect against ultraviolet radiation. Chiguard® 5530 is very soluble in most organic solvents and is dispersible in aqueous systems, which makes it particularly useful for automobile and industrial coatings.

Chiguard® 5530 is a liquid at room temperature which makes it much easier for handling than other benzotriazoles UV absorbers.
