Dynasylan GLYMO is a bifunctional organosilane possessing a reactive organic epoxide and hydrolysable methoxysilyl groups.
The dual nature of its reactivity allows Dynasylan GLYMO 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 GLYMO is a colorless low-viscosity liquid with a slight turpentine-like odor. It is soluble in alcohols, ketones and aliphatic or aromatic hydrocarbons.
Important product effects that can be achieved through the use of Dynasylan GLYMO 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 GLYMO can also improve such processing properties as:
- Filler dispersion
- Rheological behavior (i.e. viscosity reduction) Newtonian behavior
- Increased filler loading
