Silicones are recognized as multifunctional ingredients in a variety of hair care products. With their unique set of chemical and physical properties, these highly versatile materials not only condition hair, but they can be used to add shine, make combing easier, provide color protection, help guard against damage from heat styling, enhance hair strength, repair damaged hair, give a perception of moisturization, aid curl retention, control frizz, add volume—or even reduce volume. In short, silicones can play major roles—whether in shampoos, conditioners, colorants or styling products.
The sensory Escape Texture Kit is a demonstration of the trend-driven solutions and global perspective Dow Corning uses to help out customers meet the trends around the world. Xiameter silicone technologies that can help to create unique product experiences that surprise and delight consumers.
Introduction of alkyl and aromatic substituents produces polysiloxanes that are much more compatible with organics. Good thermal stability and the organo-compatibility of linear alkylmethylsiloxanes make polymers suitable to formulate paintable mold release agents for metals, plastics, and metals
Fluids, formulation of paintable industrial mold release agents for rubber, plastics and metals, no corrosion or mold build-up residue, formulation of lubricants, rubber to rubber, waxes provide enhanced lubricity, water repellency in personal care formulations.
Xiameter polish enhances and protects the painted surface of an automobile by depositing a thin layer or film of material. Silicones are used to improve a number of auto polish properties including ease of applications, polish cleaning ability, ease of buffing, gloss, color intensity, durability, and water repellency.
Mineral fillers are important additive and modifiers for organic polymers. Alkoxysilanes are a natural fit to treat the surface of the mineral to make it more compatible and dispersible in the polymer, or even to make the filler a reinforcing additive.
Benefits of Silane Treatment include improving adhesion between the mineral and the polymer, improving wet-out of mineral by the polymer, improving dispersion of the mineral in the polymer, improving electrical properties, increasing mechanical properties, reducing viscosity of the filler.
The unique properties of silanes are used to enhance the performance and improve processes in the plastic and rubber industries.

Xiameter Silane coupling agents are silicone based chemicals that contain two types of reactivity, inorganic and organic in the same molecule. Silane will act as an interface between glass, metal or minerals to organic materials including polymer, coating or adhesives.
