Coupling Agents - Bridging Organics & Inorganics
SEI Coupling Agent Technology
SCT Coupling Agent Technology is a tremendous break through that allows formulators, coatings and chemical manufacturers true compatibility between inorganic and organic materials. SCT Coupling Agents act as bridges that promote compatibility and form robust and stable bonds between incompatible materials. These products react with free protons at the inorganic interface resulting in monomolecular layers on the inorganic surface. Once this reaction takes place a cohesive matrix is formed that offers high-end and log-term performance.
SCT may have up to six functions in the matrix, which include polymer catalysis and other heteroatom effects – independent of inorganic content. SCT treated inorganics are hydrophobic, organophilic, and organofunctional. Fillers may be pretreated or treated in situ absent water of condensation and drying techniques as needed with silanes.
