June 8, 2011

This company has updated its “Hydrophobicity, Hydrophilicity and Silane Surface Modification” brochure. The new publication includes new functional materials, including silanes with embedded polarity, biomimetic activity and fluorescence.

The brochure contains a description of non-functional silane monomers and siloxane oligomers used to render surfaces hydrophobic or hydrophilic. The brochure distinguishes the features and benefits of the entire range of commercial alkyl-silanes and aryl-silanes, including dipodal PEG and fluorinated materials for use as water repellents; release coatings; architectural coatings; pigment dispersants; mineral surface treatments; and anti-stiction, optical, dielectric, biomimetic fluorescent coatings. It also includes information on how to apply materials to achieve desired performance.
