BRB Silanil® 164, a reactive alkylalkoxysilane containing a long alkyl chain of -C16H33 (hexdecyl) and trimethoxysilyl inorganic group. The hexadecyl group of BRB Silanil® 164 is a hydrophobic hydrocarbon chain delivering excellent water repellency features, thus it is used to modify the surface of construction materials, e.g. concrete and inorganic masonry substrates, to form a protective surface surrounding inorganic particles. These long alkyl chains also improve the dispersability of fillers in organic paints and polymers when it is used as hydrophobizing agent on fillers which improved the mechanical properties.
BRB Silanil® 299, a reactive alkoxysilane containing trimethoxysilyl inorganic group and phenyl group. It is easily hydrolyzed by water and moisture in the atmosphere by changing the trimethoxysilyl inorganic group into three reactive silanol groups which bond inorganic substances and also able to crosslink each other to from network or bigger molecule. The phenyl group able to withstand oxidation and reduction and thus provides thermal stability and also hydrophobic character to the modified products. The hydrolysis reaction of phenyltrimethoxysilane is faster than phenyltriethoxysilane.
