UVA
Explanation:
...para resistir rayos UVA...

The acronym "UVA" is much more fashionable in commercial contexts to talk about glasses etc... people like to hear it and is much easier to pronunciate than "ultravioleta" (which is correct but not usual).

hope it helps :) You choose!

Best wishes, Flavio

estabilizados frente a la radiación ultravioleta


Explanation:
Hola,

O a la luz ultravioleta. Te copio abajo un texto que explica la relación del cadmio con la estabilidad frente a este tipo de radiación,. Además, es un texto acerca de materiales de PVC, que parece ser el tema que estás traduciendo.

Suerte!

"Estabilizante frente al Calor

La dependencia de la estabilidad al calor del contenido en plomo y cadmio ha creado ciertos problemas, especialmente para los procesadores de adhesivos. El bario y el cadmio se mantienen habitualmente en el mercado del PVC flexible (calandrado, envases y plastisoles) y algunas áreas de regidos. Su multifuncionabilidad asegura buena estabilidad al calor, más lubricidad y una estabilidad a la luz UV de forma sinérgica. Los productos de plomo son indispensables en el perfeccionado de alambres y cables, otro baluarte del PVC flexible, por su actividad química y efectos secundarios de su envejecimiento muestra valores altos de aislamiento y buena economía."
