The strength imparted to the plastic by the glass fibre combined with silane-inducted excellent adhesion promotion provides high profile properties of the reinforced material.
- High elasticity
- Low weight
- Corrosion resistance
- Chemical resistance
- Good heat and sound insulation
The natural glass surface shows poor adhesion to polymers, particularly in the presence of moisture. For this reason the glass surface is altered organophilic by a size or finish treatment. The essential components of the size or finish are our Dynasylan® products.
- Transmission of glass fibre strength to the polymer
- Reduction of moisture sensitivity
- Mechanical protection of glass fibres
- Improvement of adhesion
The best results are obtained with methacryl-functionalized Dynasylan® MEMO sized products in polyester and vinyl ester resins. The epoxysilane Dynasylan® GLYMO and the aminosilanes Dynasylan® AMEO and the water-based Dynasylan® HYDROSIL 1151 products show superior performance in epoxy resins.
