Category: AMINE FUNCTIONAL SILICONE FLUID

Description:

GP-6 is an amine functional silicone polymer with the following structure where x=100 and y=4:

GP-6 is compatible with dimethyl silicone fluids and with aliphatic, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbon solvents. Some of the special properties of GP-6 are listed below:

High Amine-Alkyl Content
Stable Indefinitely in Closed Containers
Good Heat Stability
Applications:

The amine-alkyl functionality of GP-6 provides a versatile reaction site for the synthesis of a variety of silicone-organic copolymers which may be tailored for use in textiles, coatings, car polishes and many other applications. The polar amine groups in GP-6 demonstrate a high affinity for many substrates, suggesting uses of GP-6 in lubricant, coating and mold release formulations. Some specific applications are listed below:

Rubber and Plastic Mold Release
Rust Inhibitor Coatings
Internal Mold Release
Detergent Resistant Car Polishes
