Micro-Particle Surface Modification
Gelest provides chemistries and deposition technologies for microparticle modifications that dramatically enhance color, polarity, adhesion, dispersion, rheological behavior, photo/chemical/thermal stability, moisture/corrosion resistance, and mechanical/electrical properties.
Hydrophobicity, Hydrophilicity and Silane Surface Modification
Silanes can specifically be used for hydrophobic/hydrophilic surface modification. This information focuses on raw materials that can be used for: water repellents; anti-stiction coatings; mineral surface treatments; fillers for composites; pigment dispersants; dielectric coatings; release coatings; optical (LED) coatings; bonded phases; self-assembled monolayers (SAMs); and architectural coatings.
