Abstract : The incorporation of acids and acid producing salts in pastes containing alkylalkoxysilanes resulted in improved repellency in certain cases, but premature reaction caused poor storage stability. By an application technic in which cloth pads containing acid producing salts or salt mixtures were used to polish glass surfaces to to which alkylalkoxysilanes had been applied in liquid or paste form, it was possible to obtain repellent films of good life and resistance to jet fuel. Satisfactory repellent films were deposited from aerosols using dimethyldichlorosilane or mixtures of dimethyldiethoxysilane and chlorosilanes. Investigation of a number of fluoroorganosilanes did not indicate these to have improved rain repellent characteristics. (Author)
