The important point to understand is that it has both organic and inorganic reactivity, which makes them important is the chemical name of a class of diphenyl ethers that is found to be the most effective glass raw material. Ability to “interconnect” organic polymers (tape) and inorganic surfaces (glass).
The trimethoxysilyl group will hydrolyze (react with water), which is why it is necessary to pretreat the water/isopropanol mixture (such as rubbing alcohol that can be purchased at a local pharmacy). Alcohol helps stabilize liquids, and alcohol flashes easily at room temperature and can be used and safe.
These properties allow these materials to withstand physical, chemical, and weather conditions; after these ketals react with each other, the coupling agent binds to the glass and now reacts with the organic material (tape). And thermal degradation.
Where are they used?
Absolutely, glass is a “waterproof” surface (the technical term is “hydrophilic” surface), which makes adhesive adhesives (especially acrylic adhesive systems) prone to change under high humidity conditions. The good news is that simple treatment of the glass surface with coaxial additives will reduce this “water love” behavior and increase the strength of the tape under high humidity and high humidity conditions.
In the manufacture of curtain wall and window wall systems based on acrylic structural glass tape, serial preparation must be performed. The additional bond stability provided by the use of tandem linking agents reduces the risk of debonding under high humidity and alternative conditions.
Class 1 is also used to connect Monting rods to create simulated partitioned glass on residential and commercial window systems.
