GENIOSIL® WP1

Waterproofing, silane-modified polymers

GENIOSIL® WP1 is a polyether-based silane-terminated polymer suitable as
binder in moisture curing formulations. It is a clear liquid with a slight but characteristic odor and differs to conventional silylated polymers due to its high reactivity. This is a direct consequence of the structural proximity of the nitrogen atom to the silicon atom in the dimethoxy(methyl)silyl-methylcarbamate group (alpha-effect). It hydrolyzes in the presence of moisture to finally form a stable siloxane network initiated by mild catalysis as opposed to heavy metal ions.
