Dimethicone 500

A high quality of silicone oil which is clear, water- white, tasteless, odourless and neutral liquid. Its viscosity shows very little change with temperature variation. It exhibits minimum of change among all types of silicone fluids.

Outstanding resistance to high and low temperature extremes, maintenance of flexibility over a wide temperature range are its unique properties. With a flash point of 315oC it is ideal for use as an oil bath up to 230oC

It shows high resistance to breakdown by mechanical shearing. The low change in viscosity with temperature and excellent heat and cold resistance makes it an ideal lubricant. It is, therefore, widely used in gear wheels, bearings and brushes. It exhibits excellent dielectric properties, which are maintained for prolonged periods of time even under varying operating conditions.

Silicone 500 is used in personal care products as it is a good foam builder, It imparts soft silky feel to the hair, ensures smooth wet shaving foams and is non-irritant to skin.

Performance properties:

  • High and low-temperature stability
  • Low pour point
  • Low temperature and pressure dependence of viscosity
  • Good dielectric characteristics
  • Low interfacial energy
  • High surface activity
  • High compressibility
  • Chemical inertness

Uses for Silicone 500:

  • Heat transfer media
  • Thermal transfer fluids
