According to BCC Research, the global engineering resin and polymer alloy/blend market were estimated at $35.2 billion in 2016. The polyamide segment is the second largest at $9.8 billion. It is within this market that this invention may have an impact.
Navy scientist and engineers have developed novel industrial resins from silane functional polyamides which produce a very hard, fast-curing, highly chemical resistant film which possesses excellent adhesion and good thermal stability. A key benefit to these resins is their non-toxicity.
- The adipate-based resin system can be used advantageously as a dipodal silane additive to improve adhesion of coatings to difficult substrates.
- The unmixed resin is sufficiently low in viscosity to be used without any solvent and can be used to formulate high heat and fire resistant coatings.
- The product can also be used as a reactive diluent in oil-based coatings or as a porosity filler for metal sprayed coatings.
- The resin is suitable to be used as a polysiloxane resin with outstanding weathering properties.
- The flexibility of the resin system can be improved by partially end-capping with an amino silane.
- It is also possible to add primary and or secondary amines or polyamines to control the chain length and the percentage of silane in the backbone.
