Silane coupling agents are excellent adhesion promoters for dissimilar substrates. They have been used for decades to modify surfaces, fillers and binders in the coatings, glass and composites industries. This unique ability of silanes to act as a bridge comes from the structure R'-(CH2)n-Si(OR)3 where the silicon end of the molecule binds to a suitable substrate while the R group can either bind to the medium or provide a compatible environment for the bonding to take place.

Session Description:

Specific examples of adhesion promotion achieved by using silane coupling agents on different surfaces will be presented during this webinar. Advanced silane known as dipodalsilanes which are represented by the general strucutre (RO)3Si-(CH2)n-R'-(CH2)n -R-Si(OR)3 will also be discussed along with specific application examples. Dipodalsilanes, with twice as many hydrolyzablealkoxy groups as conventional silanes, form denser interfacial layers and stronger structures above the interface through the formation of highly crosslinked siloxane networks. Apart from being used as adhesion promoters, silane coupling agents have found applications in corrosion resistance, durability of coatings, as rheology modifiers and anti-fog applications which will be discussed during the course of the webinar.
