Gelest updates Hydrophobicity, Hydrophilicity and Silane Surface Modification brochure
June 16, 2011
Gelest, Inc. has updated its Hydrophobicity, Hydrophilicity and Silane Surface Modification brochure. This 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 emphasis of this 80-page updated publication is on distinguishing 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 comprehensive information on how to apply materials to achieve desired performance.
In all industries, problem solving, technology developments, and challenging standard practices are key to improving performance. In extreme environments, or when wear is an issue, the challenge is to maintain high performance while ensuring ec…
