The Versatility of Silane: Attributes and Applications

Silane, also known as monomeric silicone, is a versatile compound that is often a key component in tweaking chemical formulas to achieve ideal results. Used by a range of industries, some of silane’s most widely utilized attributes include: coupling ability, adhesion promotion, water repellence, and crosslinking.


Main Silane Attributes

Coupling Ability: Silane coupling agents create a bond between inorganic material and organic material. The chemical components in silane reinforce the bond between the two materials by creating a water resistant seal between them. Silane coupling is ideal for blending or coating materials like metal, glass or fiberglass with organic rubbers or polymers.
