prominently in the ever-increasing trend toward high strength plastic
Mineral and Filler
Treatment - Using alkoxysilanes, organo-reactive silane coupling agents,
and silane crosslinkers you can improve hydrophobicity, coupling performance
and compatibility between materials, and other material properties.
Paint - Ink -
Coatings - Silane monomers, in the form of organofunctional alkoxysilanes,
have wide utility in coatings as adhesion promoters, pigment treatments, and
Rubber - Silanes are the key to providing a method of effectively bonding
various inorganics to the polymer phase.
Adhesives - Silanes are widely used to improve the adhesion of a broad
range of adhesives and sealants to inorganic substrates such as metals, glass
