Webinar Description:

Adhesion promoters, or coupling agents, act as molecular bridges at the interface between a polymer and a substrate to enhance adhesion between the two materials. The type of adhesion promoters considered in this webinar are difunctional or multifunctional reactive silanes that contain both organofunctional and hydrolyzable groups. These organosilanes are applied as primers to the substrate or are added to the adhesive or sealant formulation in order to achieve self-priming adhesion characteristics.

The art and technology of adhesion promotion resides in the chemical design of the adhesion promoter molecule based on its affinity for the substrate and for the applied adhesive or sealant. Ideally, the interfacial bridge formed by the adhesion promoter will improve the initial joint strength and prevent delamination of the adhesive or sealant from the substrate, even when exposed to water or other weathering influences.

This first webinar will cover organosilane adhesion promoter fundamentals including basic chemistry and functions, theories of adhesion promotion, and promoter selection as well as the use of organosilane adhesion promoter in primers.
