XIAMETER® Brand Silanol (OH-Functional) Silicone Emulsions
XIAMETER silanol silicone emulsions are stable blends of crosslinkable OH-terminated polydimethylsiloxane polymers and water.
Features And Benefits
XIAMETER silanol emulsions provide many of the benefits of silanol fluids, but in an easier-to-use, water-based form.
Emulsions based on silanol (OH-functional) silicone fluids can be reacted with various substrates. Catalysts and crosslinking agents (such as Dow Corning® brand methylhydrogen polysiloxane emulsions) can be used to obtain a more resinous silicone coating.
