Innovative Performance Additives for Plastics – GENIOSIL® Donor & PEX Crosslinking Silanes

High-quality plastics are becoming increasingly important as they replace materials such as metal, glass, wood and cotton. WACKER is your one-stop-shop for demanding plastic applications: donor silanes are the materials of choice for the chemical production of polypropylene, one of the most important polymers in modern industrial applications.

Silane crosslinking facilitates the use of low-cost thermoplastics in value-added applications such as cable insulation (replacement of PVC) and even allows metals to be replaced by crosslinked plastics in piping applications. Thus, plastics manufacturers benefit from technological advantages, mainly in the form of enhanced cost-effectiveness.
