Our organofunctional silanes are used to crosslink tailormade RTV-1 alcoxy silicones. These silicones are used to seal shower enclosures, and to glaze all glass constructions, etc.
Dynasylan® for more stability in Glass Fiber products
DYNASYLAN(R) silanes are essential as adhesion promoters to achieve high strength and good moisture resistance in glass fiber products. They transmit the glass fibre strength to the polymer, reduce the moisture sensitivity and add to the mechanical protection of glass fibres.
Dynasylan® for protective coatings
Dynasylan® SIVO 140 is used as a binder for corrosion protection coatings on ships, offshore facilities and bridges. These coatings display excellent protection against sun and ocean. Furthermore, industrial plants and utility poles belong to the typical application areas. It dries quickly, it is easy to process, compatible with many fillers and pigments.
Dynasylan® for the special flair of artificial stones
To achieve the high performance standard of modern composite systems, the use of organofunctional silanes is necessary. When used in cast stone, silanes result in a harder, slip-resistant, water- and dirt-repellent material. We manufacture various specialty silanes that promote adhesion between sand and polymer in cast stone.
