Dynasylan GLYEO is a bifunctional organosilane possessing a reactive organic epoxide and a hydrolyzable inorganic triethoxysilyl group.
The dual nature of its reactivity allows Dynasylan GLYEO to bind chemically to both inorganic materials (e.g. glass, metals, fillers) and organic polymers (e.g. thermosets, thermoplastics, elastomers), thus functioning as an adhesion promoter, crosslinking agent and/or surface modifier. Dynasylan GLYEO is a colorless low-viscosity liquid with a slight terpentine-like odor. It is soluble in alcohols, ketones and aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons.
Important product effects that can be achieved through the use of Dynasylan GLYEO include:
- Improved mechanical properties, such as flexural strength, tensile strength, impact strength and modulus of elasticity
- Improved moisture and corrosion resistance
- Improved electrical properties, for example dielectric constant, volume resistivity
Dynasylan GLYEO can also improve such processing properties as
- Better filler dispersion
- Rheological behavior (i.e. viscosity reduction) Newtonian behavior
- Increased filler loading
