Why choose Johnson Matthey for your Hydrosilylation needs?

Whatever your requirements are, our technical teams have many years of experience and R&D expertise in synthesis, formulation and characterisation of Hydrosilylation catalysts. We deliver custom solutions for your complex catalyst needs and give your product portfolio a competitive edge. 

Scaling spectrum and wide precious metal range

We can produce catalysts at all scales from laboratory to tonne scale. Our product range includes organometallic compounds of a variety of precious metals, not just platinum.

Thermally activated catalysts

Our Karstedt catalysts are clear solutions designed to give exceptionally low turbidity and formulation. We employ tight controls on catalyst concentration, stability, viscosity and inhibition.

UV activated catalysts

These catalysts significantly reduce curing time and provide uniform curing for thick parts. Together with a high quality cross linkage, they also have unique compatibility with thermally sensitive materials.

UV activated catalysts allow achieving higher line speed and potentially smaller footprint of the production line. Lower energy requirement by simple UV radiation technology significantly improves your Hydrosilylation process.

Outstanding technical expertise and R&D resources

We have technical expertise in the characterisation of hydrosilylation catalysts, including for example, NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) spectroscopy.

We have technical teams and resources devoted to innovation at both our Royston (UK) and West Deptford (US) sites. Our product development teams work in close collaboration with Johnson Matthey Technology Centre in Sonning (UK) and so have access to an even greater range of expertise and analytical techniques across Johnson Matthey R&D projects.

Platinum Hydrosilylation catalysts

Due the tight control of our process, our catalysts have a constant level of activity, with minimum variance from batch to batch.                                                                                                     This low variance, in turn, makes it easier for you to formulate, avoiding waste of catalyst and uncompleted reactions.
