Glass Resin (GR) Siloxane Polymers

Glass Resin (GR) siloxane polymers are manufactured from high purity monomers using proprietary technology.聽 To meet customer processing and material handling requirements, Glass Resins are available as:

  • Solid Flake (F)
    • Pure Resin Solid
  • Liquid (L)
    • Resin Solution in Solvent
  • Solventless (S)
    • Pure Resin Liquid

Glass Resins feature low acid and ionic impurities, good stability yet a high level of silanol crosslink sites.

Glass Resins are thermally curing resins that form highly cross-linked silicon-oxygen networks to yield films that feature:

  • Excellent Optical Clarity
  • Chemically Resistance
  • Non-Flamability
  • UV Resistance

Glass Resins can be , or be used as an active component in combination with other resin systems for improved overall properties.

Thermally cured GRs are used in a variety of applications, including

  • Abrasion Resistant Coatings for Plastics – Glass Resins provide a hard, scratch resistant coating on a variety of plastic substrates, such as eyeglass lenses, automotive instrument panel covers, cell phone screens, face shields, head lamp cover, lamp shrouds, and industrial visors

Glass Resins Coatings for Plastics

  • Electronics Coatings – Glass Resins have low metal content and are used in the manufacture of microelectronic devices, flame proof coatings for resistors and circuit board coatings
  • Mold Release Agents – Glass Resins are used to make semipermanent mold release coatings which enable molders to get multiple releases on plastic and elastomeric parts while running cleaner and maintaining paintability
  • High Temperature Applications – Glass Resins are used by formulators to manufacture laminates, composites and mold release products for handling hot glass.聽 GR can also be used in the impregnation of fabrics for replacing asbestos
