Evonik was granted the first patent for silanes in 1928. Since then, we received more than 400 patents. Our position as a world’s leading manufacturer of functional silanes is due to our uncompromising commitment to quality and highest purity of our products. Evonik sets high standards, mainly in efficiency, connection with resource conservation, compatibility and implementation of the Responsible Care® initiative. To meet these ambitious requirements, all standard and specialty products are produced in low-waste and energy cycles, or closed-loop processes.

The interaction mechanisms of silanes are manifold. Even relatively small quantities have a positive and long-lasting effect on the final product performance.
Under the brand name Dynasylan®, we offer a comprehensive range of silane product groups. These include well-established products such as aminosilanes as well as technologically sophisticated products like our water-based Dynasylan® HYDROSIL and our multifunctional silane systems.
Today Dynasylan® products are used successfully throughout the world in paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, plastics, glass fibres, artificial stones, fillers and pigments, thermosets or pharmaceuticals.
