Polydimethylsiloxane based Silicone Oil
Clear transparent polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) fluid available in a wide range based on variations in viscosity for use as lubricants, heat transfer fluid, hydraulic oil in number of applications like Textile Auxiliaries, Antifoaming Agents, Water-Proofing Agents, Metallic Treatment, Siliconization of Glass, Plastics, Rubber, Automobiles, Petroleum & Refinery operations, Antifoaming Agents, Coatings, Elastomer & Lubricants, Insulating Fluid, Mechanical fluid, Mold Release Agents, Plastic Additive, Leather Processing, Surfactants, Pharma and Cosmetic Applications.
Apply silicone fluid to articles by dipping/ spraying. As polarity of the solvent increases, the solubility of the silicone fluid decreases. For example, Silicone fluids are for all practical purposes, insoluble in glycerine, ethylene glycol, stearyl alcohol, methanol, ethanol, water.
Key Features and Benefits
- Non greasy film forming
- Can form protective breathable films on skin
- Low order of toxicity and skin sensitization
- Excellent water repellency
- Good stability over a broad range of temperatures
- Low surface tension
- Compatible with other system additives
Method of Application
Can be applied directly to surfaces, such as dipping, spraying or wiping to provide a lubricious and/ or hydrophobic coating. When a very thin film of fluid is desired, the fluid can be diluted to the desired silicone fluid concentration.
