Hydrophilic effects on mineral materials can be achieved by the use of silanes containing hydrophilic functionalities, such as amino, polyethylene oxide, and epoxy. These properties improve dispersibility in polar solvents, water, and polar polymers and allow higher filler loadings.
Organophilic effect on inorganic materials can be achieved by using a number of organofunctional silanes.
Many applications benefit from these properties:
- Compatibility between filler/reinforcement and organic polymer
- Improved processing
- Higher filler loadings
- Improved wetting of the inorganic material by the polymer
