Silicon and Carbon are the in same column of the Periodic Table, and so the chemistries of Si and C are very closely related. Siltech builds upon this similarity in the “Silmer”TM reactive line of products, in order to manufacture numerous functionalised pre-polymers. The resultant silicones can be co-reacted into analogous non-silicone systems in order to improve slip, flexibility, abrasion resistance, release, and hydrophobicity.
In the most general terms, the SilmerTM reactive pre-polymers are either multi-functional or linear di-functional, and there is an ever-increasing list of functional types, including the following:
- Hydroxyl (carbinol) OH
- Tetra Hydroxyl (carbinol) OHT functional, for better network formation and improved organo-compatibility.
- Acrylate ACR
- Tetra Acrylate ACRT
- Hydroxy OH ACR Acrylate functional.
- Hydride H
- Vinyl VIN
- Isocyanate NCO
- Amine NH
- Epoxide functional, both glycidyl-based EP and cycloaliphatic-based EPC.
- Trimethoxysilane TMS and Triethoxysilane TES
- Thiol SH
- Carboxy COOH
