Silanes are a category of silicon compounds that includes chlorosilanes, alkoxysilanes and silazanes. Silanes are used in a wide variety of fields, taking advantage of the unique properties of silicon compounds.


Modification of inorganic materials

For surface modification of inorganic substrates and fillers (to improve dispersibility in organic resins) and to improve water repellency.

Protection of functional groups

To protect the functional groups during synthesis of pharmaceuticals and agricultural chemicals.

Modification of organic resins and as a polymer raw material

For silicone modification of organic resins and as a raw material (monomer) in the production of silicone polymers and resins.
