MA0735.08.30 Nanosilica Dispersion Methacrylate is two reinforcing agents in one. MA0735 is a hybrid, 1.5nm molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane at the core, and organic methacrylate groups attached at the corners of the cage, which acts as a multi-functional crosslinker. 30 weight percent of 20nm nanosilica is completely dispersed into the MA0735. This creates a clear, colorless gel, which is easily blended into other systems.
At less than one-tenth the diameter of untreated nanosilica (left), POSS® Nanosilica (right) affords increased flow properties while maintaining and enhancing the mechanical advantages of nanosilica.
