SILICONE FLUIDS - NON REACTIVE


Low viscosity fluids (0.65-20 cSt)
Maximum compressibility, good heat transfer and the lowest service temperature. 

These fluids have greater solubility in a variety of solvents including pet oil than the more viscous fluids.

Their dispersion and surface active properties make them excellent antifoams, levelling and flow control aids in coating applications, such as low temperature heat exchangers, baths and therostats.

Their specific characteristics (low & intermediate fluids) make them excellent dielectric/coolant fluids used in transformers, rectifiers and magnetrons.

 

Intermediate viscosity (50 - 1,000 cSt)
Typically regarded as the most versatile these fluids are used in many applications such as, mould release agents for rubber, glass, plastic parts and in non-metal to metal lubrication.

It is this range of fluids that are most often utilised in safe non-volatile heat transfer applications.

Many commercial applications now exploit the unique chemistry of these materials and include: hydraulic, brake fluids, polishes, protective hand creams, antifoaming agents & precise lubrication in timing devices.

When mixed with thickeners such as silica and bentonite, greases can be formulated and when compounded with PTFE and/or molybdenum disulfide high performance greases can be designed.

 

High viscosity (5,000-2,500 000 cSt)
100,000 cSt fluids are added to paint to give hammer finishes.

They are used in die casting and mould release of thermoplastic resins.

Also in shock absorbers and load cells were they act as liquid springs.
