Idisil® improves Performance of Specialty Coatings
IDISIL® Colloidal Silica can be used in a variety of coating applications to improve coating properties. For example adding IDISIL® in certain coatings can improve properties such as binding, hardness, anti-blocking and scratch resistance.
IDISIL® Colloidal Silica nanoparticles are spherical, available in different particle sizes and their surface can be functionalized.
Moreover, low refractive index values can be achieved with IDISIL® Colloidal Silica used in antireflective coatings. Antireflective coatings help to reduce reflections on optical lenses and other optical surfaces.
Through our diverse product portfolio, we can offer aqueous dispersions as well as dispersions in other solvents. IDISIL® particle surface can be modified with hydrophobic and hydrophilic ligands to get the desired properties.
Our IDISL® grades offer the following advantages in Specialty Coatings:
Very narrow particle size distribution, no fines or large particles
Particle hardness for better abrasion resistance
Customized surface modification possible to achieve best performance
Dispersions in water and a variety of solvents available
High temperature resistance and UV stability
