Adhesion Promoter Mechanism
How Do They Work?
The highly metallic nature of zircoaluminates makes them uniquely reactive with many surfaces. The inorganic functional groups chemically interact with the substrate while the organofunctional groups react with the resin producing a complex network of bridging bonds.
Common applications which are well suited for this adhesion technology are coatings, inks, rubber and adhesives.
