Titanate, Zirconate & Aluminate Coupling Agents & Catalysts for Adhesives
Kenrich Petrochemicals, Inc.’s (“Kenrich”) Ken-React® series of titanate, zirconate and aluminate organometallics provide advancement-in-the-state-of-the-art opportunities for adhesive compositions that require: adhesion to non-polar substrates; pigment or filler dispersion; nano-particulate exfoliation; intumescent flame retardance; flexibilization without plasticizers; resistance to chemical & salt spray/long term aging & cracking; replacement of tin catalyst; etc.
The ability of Kenrich’s organometallics to couple with all material surfaces via in situ proton coordination to bond dissimilar materials offers you great opportunities for manufacturing new and novel adhesive compositions. Often superior to silanes, since surface hydroxyls are necessary for silane condensation coupling and surface hydroxyls are not needed with Ken-React® organometallics. For example, if you are trying to stick a non-polar polymer such as ETFE to silane-sized E-glass, a small amount of zirconate will enhance adhesion significantly as compared to the E-glass alone.
Kenrich offers its customers a wide range of organometallics based on their “Six Functions”, with attentive customer and technical service backed by decades of practical experience inventing and making our own plasticizers, dispersions, and specialty chemicals to provide you the solutions you need to bring your adhesives technology to the next level. If you work with adhesive materials â€“ there is a Kenrich Ken-React® that will make your elastomer/resin adhesive product better â€“ while using and processing your raw materials more efficiently.Place Order Request Sample
