Silanes Coupling Agents Center

Why Use Silanes as Coupling Agent?

Coupling agents are used to provide a stable bond between two otherwise nonbonding and incompatible surfaces. In reinforced and filled plastics, the improved bond between the fibrous or particulate inorganic component and the organic matrix polymer results in greater composite strength and longer service life.

Organofunctional silanes are the best known coupling agents, and their effect is based on their typical special chemical structure: Y-Si(OR)3.
