AM0270 is a hybrid molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane at the core, organic iso-octyl groups attached to seven corners of the cage and an aminopropyl group attached to the eighth. It has been used as a grafting agent and chain terminator. It also improves hydrophobicity and processing. It is also effective at improving weather-ability of polymers and coatings by reducing water sorption.
