Technical Background

Exclusive Patented Technology

The SMS product range is built on TWI Global RTO patented technology; Sharc Matter has the global exclusive licence to sell SMS and as such is the sole platform from which this technology can be obtained.

Sharc Matter

  • Has a range of SMS particle sizes
  • The particles are present as primary particles not aggregates or agglomerates
  • They can react with silanes, silazanes and other reactive ligands (unlike other silica formulations)
  • The low water content of the suspension enables water sensitive ligands (so can be suspended in alcohol)
  • Our SMS particles are porous, and have larger surface areas than fully dense materials

Applications of Sharc Matter

  • Hard-coating agent for plastics
  • Anti-reflective coatings
  • Scratch resistance
  • Nano-composites
  • UV / EB curable coatings
  • Paint modification
  • Heat resistance
  • Weather resistance
  • Large surface area

Properties of Sharc Matter

  • High surface area
  • Wide range of particle sizes
  • Excellent dispersability
  • Excellent stability
  • Narrow particle size distribution
