Metal Modifiers Market: Granular View of The Market from Various End-Use Segments

Metal modifiers are the type of surface modifiers added in other ingredients to modify surface properties of metals. Metal surface modifiers are generally used in manufacturing metal protective coatings. Metal modifiers enhances the metal surface properties such as corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, lubrication and antifriction amongst others.  Metal modifier also enhance adhesion between two surfaces. These are types of silanes having two functional groups, which helps in binding the two surfaces. Metal modifiers also improve lubricating properties of various metal parts in machines and automotive engines.

Metal modifiers are used in various end use industries including automotive, aerospace, manufacturing and other industries. Increasing investment on the metal protection is pushing the use of metal modifiers in various industrial applications. Metal modifiers modifies the surface properties of the metals and indirectly increases shelf life of the metal part which saves the maintenance cost and time. Wide range of materials are being used as metal modifiers which has different functions including corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, slip resistance, friction resistance, and others.
