Silicones (52)

Catalysts for Silicones

Reaxis offers a wide range of catalysts for condensation-cured silicones that are used in coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE). Specific applications include catalysis of silicone fluids, room temperature vulcanized (RTV) elastomers and adhesives/sealants, silane-modified polymers (SMP), and polyethylene-terminated silanes (PEX). Our product portfolio includes catalysts that impart preferential cure depending on functionality (acetoxy, alkoxy, and oxime), desired cure profile, selectivity and hydrolytic stability. We have a wide selection of organotin, stannous tin, zinc, bismuth products, some of which can be custom blended in various plasticizers, silanes, and other diluents.

POP (66)

Reaxis manufactures raw materials for the formulation of palladium and silver colloid activators. 

Stannous Chloride Dihydrate

REAXIS® C154 is a very high purity product that finds use in catalyst applications and Sn/Pd activator formulations for Plating on Plastics (POP).  It is also a preferred tin source for tin/nickel alloy plating and as a surface color modifier for art glass.

 

Stannous Chloride Anhydrous

REAXIS® C162 is a very high purity product that finds use in Sn/Pd activator formulations for Plating on Plastics (POP).  It is also a preferred tin source for tin/nickel alloy plating and as a surface modifier for the art glass.

Electrolytic Coloring (57)

The electrolytic coloring process is one of the major methods to color anodized aluminum, and has the advantage of providing better light fastness as compared to other coloring processes. Tin is the most stable metal salt which can be deposited at the bottom of the pores during this process, resulting in improved throwing power compared to other metals. Reaxis manufactures the following tin chemicals for electrolytic coloring:
