Recently, the Siltech R&D labs have created a family of Silmer® TMS derivatives that crosslink with condensation-cured systems and give strong film characteristics. For UV-cured systems, the company is newly offering Silmer ACRN, a tetra-functionalized acrylate silicone. Also newly developed is Silmer UACR, a silicone urethane designed to give improved elongation in UV-cured systems.
The company has shown in multiple publications that Silmer reactive silicones react into coatings or resins to alter the properties of the final film, composite or 3D additive. These materials increase flexibility, impact resistance, lower slip and CoF, as well as provide improved stain resistance. Check the company website (www.siltech.com) for these references and updates. And stop by Siltech Booth #324 for more discussion about these or any other products.
