Novel highly functional monomer / oligomer resins

Vitolane® technology is an affordable method of manufacturing silsesquioxanes, which has been invented by TWI.

These organic-inorganic hybrid resins can be added to coatings, adhesives and bulk polymers to enhance material properties such as improved abrasion resistance, increased resistance to solvents and better barrier properties. These properties can be tailored to meet specific demands of particular applications.

This technology platform offers value-adding opportunities across the supply chain and TWI is currently seeking partner organisations to exploit it commercially.
