The Benefits of Using Silane Coupling Agents for Your Materials and Coatings

Silane Coupling Agent Selection Guide

Silane Coupling Agent Selection Guide: Find the Right Silane Coupling Agent for Your Application

Silane coupling agents are used to improve the adhesion of materials, such as polymers, metals, and ceramics. This page provides a guide to selecting the right silane coupling agent for your application.

The rate of hydrolysis of silane coupling agents depends on the hydrolyzable functional group Si(OR)3, while the reactivity with organic polymers depends on the organic functional group – Y. Therefore, it is important to choose the right silane coupling agent for the different substrates or objects to be treated. The following table can help you to make the right choice of silane coupling agent:

Polymer Silane coupling agent
Amino Epoxy Sulfur-Based Mercaptobase Methyl Acryloyloxy Vinyl Urea Isocyanate Group
Acrylic Acid
Acrylic Emulsion
Butyl Rubber
Epoxy Resin
Furan Resin
Nitrile Rubber
Phenolic Resin
Polysulfide Rubber
Polyethylene Butyraldehyde
Waterborne Polyurethane Dispersions
Silicone Resins
Styrene-Butadiene Emulsion
Styrene-Butadiene Rubber
Urine Aldehyde Resin
Vinyl Resin

Remarks: ☆ Preferred; △Applicable; □ is only available for specialty silanes.
