Organofunctional Silanes exhibit a bridge-building property which is particularly important in 5 fields:
How is it possible?
Organofunctional silanes are silicon-based chemicals containing two groups, inorganic and organic, in the same molecule:
- Alkoxy groups (hydrolysable) such as methoxy-, ethoxy-, etc .
- Organo-functional group, such as amino-, epoxy-, vinyl-,etc .
These two groups exhibit different reactivity and allow sequential reaction.
Most of the Silanes act as a bridge between organic and organic/inorganic components.
The function and molecular (chemical) nature of the organic polymer will determine the choice of Silane. And the dosage is specific for each formulation.
