Reactive modification of polymers
By using siloxanes with functional groups such as acryloxy, aminoalkyl, carboxyl, polyester or hydroxyalkyl siloxanes can be incorporated permanently into suitable polymers such as PA, PET, PBT, TPE ot TPU.
The modification of polymers by siloxane segments enhances several characteristics like impact resistance, elasticity and hydrophobicity. This opens new performance profiles for different polymer types.
- TEGOMER® C-Si 2342
TEGOMER® C-Si 2342 is a reactive organo-func-tional polysiloxane used as hydrophobizing agent in the leather industry. Due to the carboxyl end groups TEGOMER® C-Si 2342 can be used as a reactive component to modify bulk properties of polymers.
