  • Patent number: 10385213
    Abstract: A stabilized composition includes candle wax; an ultraviolet light absorber; and a hindered amine light stabilizer of formula (I). The compositions stabilize the candle with respect to yellowing, color fading in the case of dyed or pigmented candles, and other degradation of the waxes. The materials and compositions may be used in a wide variety of a candle waxes including, but not limited to, paraffin, beeswax, natural oils, polyamide plus fatty acids and esters thereof, fatty acids such as stearin, opacifiers, glycerides plus oxidized wax, alcohols, and ethylene oligomers.

  • Patent number: 7419513
    Abstract: Compounds which have a benzotriazole and a hindered amine moiety in the same molecule are typified by the formula A wherein at least one of G2, R1 or R2 contains a hindered amine moiety are extremely effective light stabilizers having both the UV absorbing activity of a benzotriazole and the light stabilizing efficacy of a hindered amine in the same molecule. These compounds are effective stabilizers for thermoset resin compositions, thermoplastic resin compositions, for photographic applications, for pigmented or dyed polypropylene, polyamide or polyester fibers, and for white, dyed, dipped, unscented and/or scented candle wax against discoloration and fading when incorporated therein alone or in combination with an antioxidant.
