Adhesion promotion and coupling agents

Dynasylan® organofunctional silanes act as adhesion promoters or coupling agents between inorganic materials (glass, minerals, and metals) and organic polymers (thermosets, thermoplastics, and elastomers).

The wind energy market, in particular, will still grow at an above average rate around the world for the next decade. It will be driven by pro-environmental regulations, as well as by a change in the ratio of on-shore to off-shore equipment installed. As off-shore wind turbines provide a higher yield on energy, the demands (salt water and winds, corrosion, etc.) on the materials (steel, resins, adhesives) used will increase.

Organofunctional silanes like Dynasylan® GLYMO, Dynasylan® AMMO, Dynasylan® 1124, and Dynasylan® 1146 act as adhesion promoter in bonding pastes, and they can further improve the crosslinking density of suitable bonding pastes.

Dynasylan® silanes serve as ideal adhesion promoter for polyurethane windshield sealants.
