Effect of ZnO Nanoparticles on the UV Light Fastness and Climate Resistance of PVC Film
In this work, effect of ZnO Nanoparticles on the UV light fastness and climate resistance of PVC film was investigated. The results showed that after 4 h irradiation and 4 times in the cycle system, tensile strength and elongation at break of the ZnO-coated films decreased, but still larger than that of the blank PVC-based films. The analysis of the results revealed that the ultraviolet light fastness and climate resistance of the ZnO-coated PVC film was improved, which may be attributed to the ZnO nanoparticles coated on the surface.
