Polycarbonate discolors as a manifestation of autoxidation. This is of major concern, because, besides its high impact strength, the primary commercial properties of PC are its optical properties such as transparency.
The use of phosphite or phosphonites in combination with acid acceptors is recommended to suppress discoloration. BASF offers a range of products to stabilize polycarbonate for different applications.
