Siltech is a privately owned business, we hope and believe that the pride we feel in this company channels its way through each of our employees to every customer.
As an Innovation company, Siltech has built our business and reputation by creating new silicones for new customers with new applications. Change is the only constant in business and Siltech understands and embraces your need to change. Our philosophy is to constantly innovate and create new products which provide you with enabling solutions to your problems.
Siltech develops, manufactures and markets a full line of organo-functional silicone compounds and related specialties for a wide range of industrial applications, using our patented and otherwise proprietary technologies. Our expertise in specialized organo-modified silicone polymers has resulted in more than 40 patents.
Siltech owns and operates two manufacturing plants in the Greater Toronto Area. These plants are equipped with efficient, large-scale, high-temperature and pressure reactors, thin film evaporators and other modern equipment. Siltech is proudly ISO 9001:2008 certified.
Siltech invests a substantial portion of our resources into R&D and new product development. Our R&D and technical service laboratories are modernly equipped and staffed by chemists with many decades of experience in diverse segments of the chemical processing industry. In addition, we have efficient pilot plant facilities available to produce special products for your experimental needs.
Siltech offers the coatings industry a broad line of Siltech additives and Silmer® reactive silicones as well as more unique chemistries.
Siltech inks & coatings additives have long been recognized as providing special properties including improved slip, gloss, mar resistance, flow, leveling and foam control. Furthermore, because these silicones are efficient at very low concentrations, they are cost effective, and widely used.
Silmer® Reactive Silicones
Our expertise and portfolio of reactive silicones aligns with industry needs to bind into a coating as well as to modify resins obtaining hybrid properties.
Our R&D, Technical Service and Process R&D laboratories are modern, well-equipped, co-located with our manufacturing facilities and staffed with first-class chemists and engineers. These scientists have years of experience in synthesis and key applications such as personal care, polyurethane foam stabilization, inks and coatings, and silicone gel formulation.
Our first rate analytical labs support the quality of our manufactured products as well as new product development and technical service.
Siltech's track record of innovation and outside-of-the-box problem solving is demonstrated by our broad portfolio of product types. Our early history as an organic surfactant company gives us a different perspective from other silicone manufacturers and results in classic organic surfactant derivations to silicone such as Silamine®, Silphos® and Silquat® grades.
All Siltech products are manufactured to the highest standards to ensure that they meet our customers' needs. Siltech also offers the flexibility of providing many of these products either in an appropriate solvent, or neat. They are designed to meet specific requirements of various coating systems such as high solids, water-based, or energy curing.
Many problems old and new may be solved with new silicone specialties. We welcome the opportunity to partner with customers, as we believe that this results in the creation of the most formulator-friendly, cost-effective silicone specialties anywhere.
