Or another way of asking the same question: can the silane distinguish
between crosslinked gum and non-crosslinked gum, and adhere only the
crosslinked gum to the glass while releasing the non-crosslinked gum?
This is what would have to happen for the silane to be an effective
adhesive agent for the crosslinked gum image; I'd be interested to
understand by what mechanism the silanes would be able to make this
