Achiewell is a versatile and reliable supplier of silanes and silane coupling agents. Since 2011, Achiewell offers one of the most complete ranges of range of silane coupling agents for commercial applications available.
Silane coupling agents are a class of silicon compounds which provide chemical bonding between organic materials and inorganic media. Silanes are commonly used to improve corrosion resistance, adhesion promotion and for surface modification applications.
Silanes can be functionalized with various organic functionalities including amines, epoxies, acrylates, methacrylates, vinyls, mercaptans, phenyls among others. Each class of functional group imparts unique properties and allows for a broad range of applications.
Achiewell’s Acryloxy silanes are methacrylic functional silanes and widely used in coatings, composites, adhesive, and sealants. They used as adhesion promoter at organic/inorganic interfaces, as a surface modifier. Acryloxy Silanes can be used as a coupling agent to improve physical and electrical properties of glass or mineral filled thermosetting resin systems that cure under heat and moisture. Alkoxy Silanes are highly active cross-linking agents with highly reactive methoxy or ethoxy group.
Alkyl silanes are used to formulate of water repellant products. Alkyl silanes penetrate and chemically react with cementitious substrates, treated substrates become hydrophobic and retain their original appearance for extended periods of time long time. Alkyl Silanes also help to improve compatibility of mineral fillers or pigments and help their dispersions.
Amino silanes are organosilane coupling agent that contains an amino functional group. The amino functionality allows specific targeting for thermosetting resin matrixes such as epoxy, polyurethane, polyethylene, polyacrylate, butyl rubber and PVC. They are used as adhesion promotors in coatings, composites, adhesives, sealants, glass manufacturing, foundry resins and other applications. In coating and sealants they improve dispersion of inorganic pigments and fillers.
Chloroalkyl silanes are mostly used as coupling agents to improve the bonding performance of organic polymers and inorganic substrates. Widely used for the preparation of silicone oils and silicone rubbers. Chloroalkyl silanes perform great as surface modifiers for personal care and cosmetics.
Cross-linking silanes are used in chemical resistant, heat resistant, and corrosion resistant coatings or used as a crosslinker in silicone-rubber systems. Additionally, these silanes can crosslink various organic polymers such as polyether, polyester, acrylates and polyurethanes to improve their properties. When applied to natural stones or other construction materials, these silanes form silica-gel like binders that increase the substrates strength.
Epoxy Silane are bifunctional organosilanes that contains reactive epoxy group and hydrolysable alkoxy group. Epoxy Silanes mainly used in glass fiber treatment to improve mechanical properties; in wire and cable industry to improve specific inductance. Epoxy Silanes used as coupling agent for epoxy composites employed in electronic chip encapsulation.
Phenyl Silanes a group of functional silanes containing a phenyl group and hydrolysable alkoxy group. Phenyl group make such silanes perform under higher temperatures. Used mostly as a crosslinkers of organic resins, surface modifiers and hydrophobic additive to other silanes. Also used as intermediate to produce phenyl silicone fluids.
Mercapto-Silane are functional organosilanes with mercapto group and hydrolysable alkoxy group. They mostly used as adhesion promoters, surface modifiers, coupling agents and crosslinkers. The main industries of usage are silicone rubbers and tiers. They are used in rubber and tires processing for polymers modifications, inorganic minerals, or filler dispersion. Superior curing including UV cure and vulcanization properties in the overall compounds can be achieved when utilizing Mercapto-Silane.
Trialkoxy is a silane coupling agent that is highly reactive with a high crosslinking density. This compound produces a strong bond with inorganic materials.
Vinyl Silanes are organosilanes that containing a vinyl functional group and hydrolysable groups on the other side. Vinyl Silanes mainly used in wires, cables, pipes fields to enhance mechanical and electrical properties, temperature resistance, weatherability, promote tensile and tear strength. In addition, Vinyl Silanes widely used in coating and sealants as well as moisture scavenger for MS (Silane-modified) polymers processing.
