Binder - Amino - Dynasylan® SIVO 160 is a water-borne storage stable silane based sol-gel system for the formulation of inorganic surface treatment primers. As part of the SIVO® SOL Technology, it features all the benefits of the other well established products of this series. These are the absence of heavy metals, fluorides, and solvents. It is designed to have a low volatile organic content.
As part of the SIVO® SOL Technology, it features all the benefits of the other well established products of this series. These are the absence of heavy metals, fluorides, and solvents. It is designed to have a low volatile organic content. Due to its polymeric nature, it is characterized by a high reactivity. This is demonstrated by its extraordinary low curing temperature of 20 to 80 °C which represents a major breakthrough for water-borne sol-gel systems. Dynasylan® SIVO 160 is a clear to slightly opaque, colorless to slightly yellow, low viscosity liquid.
Dynasylan® SIVO 160 can be used to formulate new conversion coatings for metal surfaces. Formulations of the product can advantageously used on glass, ceramics, stainless steel, HDG steel, zinc, aluminum, and magnesium.
Because of its bi-functional nature Dynasylan® SIVO 160 finds its use as an additive to formulate primers and wash-coats as conversion layers, sealers or adhesion promotion primers on metal, glass, or ceramic surfaces. The product binds strongly to the metal through the reactive silanol groups of the molecule while being able to interact with a great variety of organic resins with its organofunctional groups. The performance of Dynasylan® 160 can be optimized by special formulations with other water-borne sol-gel systems or additives.
The molecular weight of the molecule has been especially tailored for optimized wetting properties, thus a homogeneous surface layer is formed on the substrate.
