Products and Benefits
Titanates nano-bridge inorganics to organics via six functions
(1) (2) (3)(4)(5)(6)
(RO)n-Ti-(-O- X- R’ – Y)4-n
Function 1 (RO)n Coupling
Titanates form 1.5-nanometer
atomic monolayers on the interface
of inorganic/organic substrates via
proton coordination to bridge
chemically two dissimilar substrates.
Function 2 (Ti-O) Catalysis
Titanates are catalysts.
Function 3 (X) Phosphatization
Heteroatom function phosphatizes
interfaces to prevent corrision and provide nano-intumescence.
Function 4 (R’) Compatibilization
Aliphatic non-polar to aromatic
polar groups match the coupled
interface to polymer polarity.
Function 5 (Y) Curative
Amino, methacrylic, acrylic, mercapto groups interact with curatives to increase x-link in thermosets.
Function 6 [ )4-n] Hybridization
Monolkoxy, chelate, coordinate, neoalkoxy, quat titanates and zirconates can be synthesized to provide multiple functions from hyrophobic to hydrophillic.
- Coupling/Viscosity Reduction
- Catalysis/Polymer Flow
- Phosphatization/Flame Retard
- Hybridization/Water Solubility
