To improve properties and enhance performance for rubber and plastic compounds, the most favorable and efficient way is to add inorganic filler or reinforcing agent. A large amount of inorganic filler and reinforcing agent has been used in the process of plastics and rubbers. Adding fillers can not only improve the quality and reduce the cost of products, but also significantly improve the properties of rubber and plastic products. However, due to the differences in chemical structure and physical morphology between inorganic fillers and organic polymers, the lack of affinity between them often affects the mechanical properties and processing properties of rubber and plastic products.
Co-Formula functional silanes are introduced to act as coupling agents and dispersing agents. By means of chemical reaction or physical coating between coupling agent and inorganic filler, the surface of filler can be changed from hydrophilicity to lipophilicity. Inorganic filler can be closely combined with organic polymer. Especially, the strength, cohesion, electrical properties, hydrophobicity and anti-aging properties of the compounds can be significantly improved. These silane coupling agents are also acting as polymerization modifiers and crosslinking agents in the synthesis of various polymers.
Silicone oil from Co-Formula play an important role in rubbers and plastics industries. Co-Formula silicone oil is not sticky with rubber, plastics, metals or other materials. It is mainly used as a releasing agent in various rubber and plastic products formulations. It can also be used for precision casting. Such releasing agent not only makes mold release easier, but also makes the surface of rubber and plastic products clean, clear and smooth.
Silane coupling agents include mercapto silanes, phenyl silanes, vinyl silanes, crosslinkers and Silazanes, methyl silicone fluids, silanes oligomers and plastic additives are the main products at Co-Formula for plastic and rubber industries. For more details about them, please contact Co-Formula.
