Gelest recently announced the redesign and launch of its Web site.

Joel Zazyczny, Business Manager for Silanes & Metal-Organics, Gelest Inc., recently announced the re-launch of the company’s Web site, “The site has been redesigned to provide a more user-friendly business development tool that enables existing customers and prospects to develop and launch next-generation technologies in new and existing markets,” he said.

Since its founding in 1991, Gelest Inc. has grown to be recognized as a leader and innovator in materials science and technology, as well as a customer-driven manufacturer of the most comprehensive selection of silane, silicone, and metal-organic compounds for advanced technology markets. In keeping with this customer-driven approach, the company Web site has been substantially upgraded to make Gelest’s wide-ranging capabilities and services easily and quickly accessible.

The new site is designed to allow users to quickly explore and find the information of interest from the main page. The quick search feature allows a review of over 3,000 compounds and MSD sheets, with an advance search by Product Code, CAS Number, Chemical Name or Chemical Structure via ChemDraw. A scroll-down menu enables quick access to information on the several product lines offered by Gelest, including: custom synthesis; metal-organics; performance products; silanes; silicones; specialty olefins; cosmetic materials; and micro-particles for surface modification. Another scroll-down menu unveils a list of the more than 30 diverse applications Gelest products cover, including adhesives and sealants, personal care, nanotechnology, advanced ceramics, biotechnology, conductive coatings, chemical vapor deposition, metallization, plastics, polymer synthesis, silicone-based lubricants, solid-state ionics, superconductors, UV-EB, and more.

Clicking on each application link leads to a concise description of the application, the specific Gelest products suitable for each application, and appropriate technical literature. Alternatively, visitors may select and download any of Gelest’s technical brochures, search technical articles and patents, request a quotation, order periodic tables, and review answers to frequently asked questions.
