The Evolution of Silicon-based Technology in Coatings

  • Gerald L. Witucki
  • Published 2003


The utility of silicon-based technologies in coatings has evolved from specialty, high-performance applications into broad usage throughout the coatings industry. Tailored chemistries and cost-effective performance provide an increasing number of formulators with solutions to demanding application requirements. This paper looks at the scope of siliconbased technologies and the new wave of applications benefiting from these materials. Significant emphasis is placed on the blurring of the boundaries between silicon-based and organic chemistries. Extensive patent references provide the reader with an overview of the state of the art.
