Silanes Applications


Silanes are versatile materials used in a wide range of applications including adhesion promoters, coupling agents, crosslinking agents, dispersing agents, and surface modifiers.

Adhesion PromotersCrosslinking Agents
When added to adhesives or used as a primer on substrates, Dow Corning silanes often provide dramatic improvement in adhsion by reducing moisture attack at the interface. This results in improved:

  • Moisture resistance
  • Temperature resistance
  • Chemicals resistance

Find Adhesion Promoters.


Dow Corning silanes can be used to crosslink polymers such as acrylates, polyethers, polyurethanes, and polyesters to improve:

  • Tear resistance
  • Elongation at the break
  • Tear propagation resistance
  • Abrasion resistance

Find Crosslinking Agents.

Water ScavengersCoupling Agents
Because Dow Corning silanes react very rapidly with water, they can be used in a formulation to capture excess moisture to:

  • Prevent premature cure during compounding
  • Enhance uniform curing
  • Improve package stability

Find Water Scavengers.


When used as a coupling agent, Dow Corning silanes bind organic polymers to mineral or siliceous fillers, resulting in:

  • Improved mixing
  • Better bonding of pigment or fillers to resins
  • Increased matrix strength

Find Coupling Agents.

Dow Corning offers a wide selection of alky or aryl functional silanes.  These materials improve compatibility between, or facilitate dispersion of, an inorganic material and a resin matrix without a coupling reaction.
