Silanes offer unlimited effects
Today, there are some processes or products which cannot be imagined without silanes. During the last few decades, organofunctional silanes of the brand Dynasylan® have mainly been used as additives to improve adhesion or crosslinking, or to modify surfaces. However, silanes are being used more and more as vital components for innovative processes, for example in state-of-the-art sol-gel coatings and applications beyond your imagination.
Adhesion promotion and coupling agents
Dynasylan® organofunctional silanes act as adhesion promoters or coupling agents between inorganic materials and organic polymers. This is the most important mechanism.
Crosslinking for high efficiency
Dynasylan® products have long been used to crosslink polymers such as silicones, polyethers, epoxies, polyethylenes, polyacrylates, polyurethanes, and others.
Dehydration and water scavenging
Silanes are also used as water scavengers in moisture-cured polymers.
