ORMOCER®

The class of inorganic-organic hybrid polymers known as ORMOCER® was invented at the Fraunhofer ISC over 20 years ago. Since the introduction of this class of materials, the expertise in the synthesis, functionalization and further processing of ORMOCER® has been continuously developed and adapted for a wide range of applications.

We support and advise our customers in the industrial implementation for their specific application, including suppliers of ORMOCER®.

 

ORMOCER® coatings act as multifunctional protective coatings on many materials

 

ORMOCER® application examples


  • Mechanical protective coatings
  • Anti-adhesion / anti-static
  • Corrosion protection
  • Layers of paint
  • Sensors


  • Barrier layers / migration protection
  • Medical Technology
  • Dental materials
  • Glue
  • Films / Fibres


  • (Nano)particles
  • (Micro) Electronics
  • Polymeric ion conductors
  • Optics / Photonics

Properties

The proportions of the structural elements determine the material properties. The properties are controlled by the selection of the starting materials, the reaction control of the inorganic polycondensation reaction and the control of the linking reactions that lead to the formation of the organic network.

Basic material
properties

  • Thermoset processable
  • Non-crystalline
  • Optically transparent

Influence of
structural elements

  • Barrier effect, corrosion protection
  • Hardness, elasticity, density, porosity
  • Polarity: hydrophilic- / oleophilic-phobic
  • Sensitivity / Thermal expansion
  • Structurability / refractive index, dispersion
