What Are Polysilazanes?
Polysilazanes are polymers in which Silcon and Nitrogen atoms alternate to form the basic backbone
Polysilazanes are polymers consisting of silicon, nitrogen, hydrogen and, in the case of organopolysilazanes, carbon. Such polymers can be considered either inorganic (perhydropolysilazanes) or organic (organopolysilazanes) in nature and have both silicon and nitrogen atoms in their backbone. Polysilazane-based coatings can be modified to make protective layer:
• Hydrophobic coatings - water contact angle can be up to 120 degrees with
OPSZ (Organic Polysilazane Resins)
• Hydrophilic coatings - water contact angle smaller than 10 degrees with
PHPS (Perhydropolysilazanes Resins)
Durazane is polysilazane designed for simple and durable protection
High Performance Polysilazanes For Innovative Surfaces
Based on its unique polysilazane technology platform, AZ Electronic Materials offers a wide range of products specifically designed to form extremely thin yet durable matrix layers that can be employed as coatings. Moreover, AZ Electronic Materials is the only manufacturer worldwide offering the entire range of organic and inorganic polysilazanes at commercial scale.
For special applications of Durazane or if you require a custom formulation, our Research Department is happy to work with you to solve your problem.
