As a follow up to Part 1 – Fundamentals of Organofunctional Silane Promoters, this second webinar will cover organosilane adhesion promoter use including efficacy and recent developments. 


Organosilanes can be applied as primers to the substrate or added to an adhesive or sealant formulation to achieve self-priming characteristics.  This addition will lead to longer bond life, greater initial adhesion and increased chemical and temperature resistance. There are barriers to the efficacy of the results.  When formulated into an adhesive or sealant, multiple (and competing) reaction and diffusion mechanisms have a major influence on the effectiveness of the adhesion promoter. Knowing these barriers and how to overcome them will increase your success.
