Next Generation of Silane Oligomers for Magic Moments in Moisture Curable Technologies

This is a Past Webinar

Organofunctional silanes (Dynasylan®) are playing a fundamental role as high-perfor-mance adhesion promoters and co-crosslinkers in numerous adhesives and sealants. Traditional silane monomers often give a versatile adhesion spectrum on various important substrates, in e.g. automotive, construction or industrial applications, while silane oligomers offer additional advantages regarding compatibility to polymers, adhesion, mechanical properties, handling or environmental aspects.

As a pioneer in eco-friendly silane solutions, Evonik has already launched multi-functional silane oligomers to the A&S industry, to contribute to the green future of finished A&S systems. Such silane oligomers of the 1st generation typically create superior performance in challenging requirements but they partly also release methanol as a by-product. In this presentation, the results of several lab studies with newly developed organofunctional silane oligomers of the new 2nd generation in moisture curable formulations (e.g. SMP and silicones) will be shown. Next to lower amounts of released VOC (volatile organic compounds) during cure, new oligomers also contribute to better formulate methanol free products, and to have a positive impact on labeling - a topic that is coming more in the focus of today’s discussions.

Why should you view this webinar?

Through this seminar, you can learn which innovative Silane Oligomers should be used:

  1. To overcome current challenges reg. yellowing of SMP/silicone technologies - and how to formulate them
  2. To be front runner in formulating environmentally friendly, VOC-reduced or even methanol-free products
  3. To get additional benefits in low water uptakes or better mechanical properties
  4. To find out what are its additional benefits
