XIAMETER® Silicones Simplified - from Dow Corning

XIAMETER® Brand Siliconates And Silazanes

In addition to silanes, XIAMETER® brand also offers siliconates and silazanes.

Siliconates

Methyl siliconates react with carbon dioxide to form breathable, water-insoluble silicone resins.

Methyl siliconates are used to formulate penetrating, low-VOC water repellents.

Silazanes

Silazanes are hydrides of silicon and nitrogen that have a straight or branched chain of silicon and nitrogen atoms joined by covalent bonds. They are analogous to siloxanes, with -NH- replacing -O-.

Silazanes are used to:

  • Modify organic intermediates to make chemical processing reactions possible or more efficient
  • Incorporate silicon chemicals into finished products to modify their physical properties
