Silicone Oils

Silicone oils are clear, colourless, non-toxic and non-flammable oils also known as Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) or Dimethicone.

They are available in different viscosities (measured in centistokes, cSt) and are also the primary ingredient in our antifoams, release agents and mould making rubbers.

Product Information

All silicone oils have the following features:
• Ease of application and rubout
• Ease of buffing
• Enhances colour
• High water repellency
• High compressibility
• High shearability without breakdown
• High spreadability and compatibility
• Low environmental hazard
• Low fire hazard
• Low reactivity and vapor pressure
• Low surface energy
• Good heat stability
• Essentially odorless, tasteless and nontoxic
• Soluble in a wide range of solvents
• Oxidation, chemical and weather, resistant
• High permeability to gases (e.g., water vapor, oxygen), which allows respiration of the skin
• Silicone Oil Applications
