Glassclad Imparts the Following Properties to Treated Surfaces:
•Non-adherent, non-oily surfaces
•Greater scratch resistance
•Easier cleaning, improved appearance
•Reduces the number of surface polar sites
Uses Applications where Glassclad has been used successfully include:
•Laboratory Glassware – Improves drainage, reduces breakage
•Porcelain Ware – Provides a glide surface and reduces adhesion to other porcelain ware.
•Optical Fibers – Provides lubricity and reduces breakage during fabrication and in operational flexing
•Clinical Analysis – Treatment of analytical equipment extends clotting time of blood, reduces hemolysis, and reduces protein adsorption.
•Fluorescent Light Bulbs – Increases scratch resistance, reducing breakage, increases surface reactivity
Our most popular Glassclad Coating, PS200-Glassclad 18 is a monomeric octadecylsilane derivative in a solution of t-butanol and diacetone alcohol that reacts with water to form a silanol-rich prepolymer and an alcohol. The silanol-rich prepolymer is able to condense with available hydroxy groups of glass or other siliceous materials to form a chemically bound alkylsilicone.
