Application of Silane Coupling Agents in Automobile Industry

Organosilicon can meet all kinds of accurate or variable engineering needs and is suitable for different situations requiring innovative methods. Today, in any application requiring coating, sealing, fixing, weather resistance and pouring, silane coupling agents are used to reduce pollution and maximize energy efficiency. Organosilane coupling agents permit the application of small systems such as engine compartment, minimizing waste and improving energy efficiency. Besides, organosilicon can ensure that all vehicle components are fixed in place and resistant to temperature changes, moisture, salt and fuel erosion so as to maintain the structural integrity of the vehicle.

I. Unique properties of organosilane coupling agents

Reducing production time and improving maintainability are the direct benefits of using organosilane. It is easy to use organosilane in the manufacturing process and in a variety of demanding manufacturing systems. Organosilane coupling agents can ensure the accurate installation of the joint, reduce the drying and curing time, and make the assembly more rapid and effective. With high performance, high protection, multi-purpose properties, organosilane is changing our current lifestyle and depicting the future typical applications. Enhanced silane coatings stick to the surface, permitting the automotive topcoat to withstand the harsh environment. Unique characteristics of weather resistance, chemical resistance and UV resistance can prevent corrosion and ensure reliable performance, especially in wet environment. The quality will not be affected by acid rain, sunlight, ice and snow, salt or gasoline, oil and other chemicals.

Organosilane sealant are applied in almost all new vehicles to seal and fix windshield, car roof and window. It is able to withstand poor weather conditions, and can protect passengers in the event of a collision. Tire rubber assistant airbag is one of the outstanding inventions in the automotive field. The organosilane coating can ensure that the bag cloth used to protect the driver and passengers can withstand inflation and deflation, make it more reliable, and maintain air tightness and heat resistance in the inflated state.

II. Application of silane coupling agents in the automobile industry

Organosilane coupling agents surfactant can make polyurethane foam posses the characteristics of shock absorption, weight bearing, cushioning to protect the car seat, dashboard and vehicle interior. All ignition system components are required high qualities in terms of the engine temperature during driving the automobile. Heat, together with road splash and road salt, form a very corrosive environment. Organosilane sealant and adhesive can prevent the properties of electronic components or other parts, such as ignition cable, heater and cooler hose and spark plug protective cover from being affected by temperature, humidity and other factors. The radiator must be leak proof for long-time operation. The unique sealing property of organosilane is well suited for water tank joints, radiator pipes, radiator covers and openings. Adding silane into the engine coolant is conducive to the anti-corrosion system's working in the coolant.

Self lubricating organosilane rubber can provide strong and lasting sealing for almost all automobile parts. Reinforced silane adhesive can bond everything from the rearview mirror to the vinyl panel of instrument board. Organosilane rubber is used on many tires to prolong service life and increase grip. Organosilane can help transmit more balanced power. Modern silicone oil clutches using organosilane coupling agents can increase power transmission in proportion to torque.
