Silicones

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. 

We accomplish these objectives with our commitment to the following principles:

  • Compliance
  • Monitoring
  • Waste minimization
  • Pollution prevention
  • Product stewardship
  • Employee and community education
  • Partnerships with stakeholders and public

At Reaxis we are committed to the highest level of quality for all products and processes and to the health, safety and securing of our employees and the community. Our McDonald, PA location earned its first ISO 9001 registration in 1997 and added RC 14001 registration in 2006 and we continue to strive to consistently implement continual improvement processes.

We believe that Environment, Health, Safety, Security, Responsible Care and sound business management are mutually achievable objectives.
