Gelest, Inc. has unveiled its new SIVATE™ A610 activated amine functional silane, which improves adhesion, speeds reactivity and increases bond strength in packaging, polymer, micro-electronics and curing applications.
Applications of SIVATE™ A610
- As a tie-layer between organic and inorganic substrates in multi-layer packaging
- A coupling agent for high speed epoxy adhesive bonding
- Phenolic resins
- Polyurethanes and polyamides
- Ora primer for high-speed UV-acrylated urethane cure systems
SIVATE A610 silane is a proprietary combination of a cyclic azasilane with an amine functional silane that drives a thermodynamically-favored formation of silicon-oxygen bonds to nearly 85% completion in less than 15 seconds. The SIVATE A610 activated amine silane reacts with more than three times as many hydroxyl groups as conventional ethoxy silanes and has a reaction speed more than 100 times faster than conventional silanes, providing immediate adhesion.
Compared to conventional silanes, SIVATE A610 activated amine silane reacts at high speed and offers adhesion and bonding with a wider variety of substrates, including titanium, copper, aluminum, and EVA copolymers and cellulosic resins. The introduction of SIVATETM A610 activated amine silane is an example of Gelest’s customer-centric research and development.
