Put SISC Expertise To Work for You – Our Silane Expertise and Capabilities


The Surface and Interface Solutions Center (SISC) comprises five primary expertise fields through which our industry-recognized experts can help you develop innovative and disruptive technologies.



Synthesis

The Synthesis team designs and implements cost-effective, modern silane manufacturing processes and valuable products to match the needs and specifications of our customers including all aspects of sustainability ("Green Chemistry") and safety.

See practical examples of our work in this field.

Filler

The Filler team provides technical solutions through innovation and concept evaluation in silane-filler science by discovering disruptive technologies and developing the understanding of the process/material structure/properties relationship of filler-coupling agent systems with an emphasis on filler contribution.

Examples of skills and expertise gathered within the team are:

  • Polymerizations technologies
  • Pre-treatment of mineral fillers with silane
  • Filler-silane reactivity
  • Filler dispersion in polymeric and rubbery matrixes
  • Filler interface and interphase design for optimized composites performances
  • Reinforcement theories by various type fillers (mineral and organic for tires, rubber goods, automotive applications, ...)
  • State-of-the-art analytical and testing equipment

See practical examples of our work in this field.

Reinforcement

The Reinforcement team pushes the boundaries of today's knowledge of reinforcement technologies by discovering understanding the process/material structure/properties relationship of filler-coupling agent-polymer matrix systems with a focus on interface/interphase design.

Examples of skills and expertise gathered within the team are:

  • Thermal and photo-activated cross-linking technologies
  • Polymerizations technologies
  • Resins & inorganic coating and materials
  • Treatment of mineral fillers with silane coupling agents
  • Polymer and rubber reinforcement
  • Filler dispersion and various applications (tires, rubber goods, automotive, paint, sealants...)
  • Sol-gel chemistry and applications
  • State-of-the-art synthesis, analytical and testing equipment

See practical examples of our work in this field.

Adhesion

The Adhesion team provides technical solutions through innovation and new concept evaluation, emphasizing the importance for understanding the nature and the structure of the interphase, which forms between two dissimilar materials (plastics, metals, organic resins, etc.).

Examples of skills and expertise gathered within the team are:

  • Room-temperature-vulcanization (RTV) technologies, both condensation and addition cure systems, as well as silicone reactive hot-melt
  • Adhesion promoter chemistry based on organosilanes
  • Substrates modification (cleaning, priming, coating) with organosilanes, resins and combinations of them
  • Understanding of [formulation - compounding process - physical properties] relationships
  • Physics of curing process across adhesive layers
  • Application of silicone and silicone-modified organics adhesives, sealants and coatings in Buildings, Construction, Electronics, Automotive, Aeronautics, Paints, Paper and Industrial assembly in general
  • Surface analysis techniques, e.g., XPS, ToF-SIMS, Contact Angle, AFM, SPM, SEM,…

See practical examples of our work in this field.

Plastics and Rubber Engineering

The Plastics and Rubber Engineering team innovates and engineers new composites with outstanding properties for both current and future market needs.
