Alkoxysilanes react very rapidly with water; they are usually used to capture excess moisture in sealants and adhesives.
SiSiB® PC6110 silane drying agent, Vinyltrimethoxysilane is the most common moisture scavenger, due to the electron interactions of the vinyl group it reacts with moisture faster than other alkoxy silanes, enabling it to function as a moisture scavenger in the presence of other silanes incorporated as silicone structural adhesive promoters, crosslinkers or coupling agents. The amount of silane added will depend on the water content of the formulation constituents.
