Silane Coupling Agents
Silanes can be used to prime metals, bind biomaterial, immobilize catalysts, provide crosslinking, and improve polymer and particle dispersions. They can also enhance adhesive bonding, increase electrical properties, maximize composite strength, and increase mechanical properties. Information on what a silane coupling agent is, how to choose one, and how to apply one can be found here.


Gelest silanes and silicones are important components in a variety of biotechnology applications ranging from diagnostic devices to biomaterials. These materials are designed to attach to an inorganic surface (typically glass) and provide an organic functionality to carry out a desired chemical interaction or reaction. Examples would be to impart hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity to a surface or to react
with biological active materials.
