Harmful UV-radiation can have a negative effect on both the substrate and its light-sensitive ingredients and lead to permanent damage. Plastic surfaces, for example, can be affected by UV light to such an extent that they consequently corrode and the pharmaceuticals or active agents contained therein are also affected.
UV barrier layers guarantee effective protection against UV light. This is achieved by reducing the UV transmission to a minimum through a reflective or absorbent layer in the UV-range.
- effective protection against UV radiation
- shielding of components and protection of light-sensitive contents
- protection against plastic corrosion (porosity and brittleness)
