Both plants are equipped with efficient, large-scale, high-temperature and pressure reactors, thin film evaporators and other modern equipment required in such unit processes as equilibration, hydrosylilation, quaternization, amidation, phosphation, esterification, etc.
In addition to allocating considerable development resources to the refinement and optimization of production techniques, which have resulted in a unique processing technology, we at Siltech pay special attention to the changing technological requirements of the industries we serve.
Our R&D and technical service laboratories are modernly equipped and staffed by chemists with many years of experience in diverse segments of the chemical processing industry. In addition, we have efficient pilot plant facilities available to produce special products for your experimental needs.
We are proud of the quality of the products described in this brochure. Most are available from stock on short notice. However, we will gladly manufacture other homologues to minimum order.
Many old problems may be solved with new silicone materials. We welcome the opportunity to partner with customers, as we believe this results in the creation of the most formulator-friendly, cost-effective silicone specialties.
