Silanes and Other Coupling Agents by Kash L. Mittal

By Kash L. Mittal

This ebook embodies the complaints of the second one overseas Symposium on Silanes and different Adhesion Promoters held in Newark, New Jersey, October 21--23, 1998. Silanes are the most well-liked and time-honored coupling brokers (or adhesion promoters) to advertise adhesion among numerous fabrics in quite a few events, e.g. coating know-how, adhesive bonding, bolstered composites, and so forth. because the first symposium in this subject in 1991, there were an enormous R&D task in constructing new and more beneficial adhesion promoters and in realizing and optimising the functionality of obtainable coupling brokers. The technical software for the symposium contained 36 papers and mirrored either overviews and unique learn participants and the presenters hailed from academia, and different examine laboratories. many alternative facets of coupling brokers have been mentioned, and either primary and utilized features have been accorded due assurance. as well as formal displays, there have been brisk and vigorous discussions through the symposium, and this occasion supplied a chance for cross-pollination of principles within the extensive area of adhesion promoters. This current quantity includes 18 papers via specialists from academia, and different examine laboratories. All manuscripts have been subjected to rigorous peer evaluate and have been certainly revised earlier than inclusion during this quantity. The e-book is split into components as follows: half 1. Silane Coupling brokers; and half 2: Non-silane Coupling Agents/Adhesion Promotors. the themes coated contain: silane adhesion prompters for hydrosilylation remedy platforms; sterically hindered silanes; research of silanes hydrolysis; adsorption of silanes on diverse substrates; interplay of water with silane movies studied by means of neutron mirrored image; characterization of glass fiber sizings; silanes as dispersion promoters; corrosion safeguard of metals by means of silanes; floor 'Intelligraft' as a brand new classification of adhesion promoters; hydroxymethylated resorcinol, sol-gels, and -diketone functionalised polymers as adhesion promoters; and plasma deposition of silanes.
