carbon nanotube, poly vinyl chloride , photo stabilization


Thin films of poly vinyl chloride , which suffer  from changes and photo degradation when exposed to atmospheric  effects, were  prepared, so it needs to introduce additives that act as , optical stabilizers as was done in the current research as carbon nanotubes have been used as a , optical stabilizer of  PVC polymer, which has reduced weight loss and changes that occur on the surface when these films are irradiated, the additives work by absorbing ultraviolet radiation to reduce polymer chain fracture, weight loss and Surface changes.
