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).
Dynasylan® functional silanes are used as high efficient adhesion promoters in windmill bonding pastes and as adhesion promoters and crosslinking agents in the rotor blades of wind turbine generators.
Dynasylan® silanes are successfully applied as high performance additives for polyurethane primers.
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. While 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 an 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.
