Methyl Silicone Fluids
Silicone fluids or known silicone oils usually refers to the linear polysiloxanes products which can maintain the liquid state at room temperature. Silicone fluids are generally divided into methyl silicone oils and modified silicone oils. The most commonly used silicone fluids are methyl silicone fluids, whose organic groups are all methyl ones.
Main Methyl Silicone Oils
As a featured silicone materials producer, Co-Formula provides several kinds of methyl silicone oils with various viscosity grade. You may find polydimethylsiloxanes or usually called dimethyl silicone oils with 0.65cst, 3~10cst, 350cst, 1000cst and 12500cst. Polymethylhydrogensiloxane or usually called methyl hydrogen silicone fluid is also available. Besides them, Co-Formula offers medium and high viscosity hydroxyl silicone fluids and modified silicone fluids as well.
Key Features of Methyl Silicone Oils
Co-Formula methyl silicone oils are colorless, odorless and volatile liquids. They are insoluble in water, methanol and ethylene glycol. Suitable solvents include benzene, dimethyl ether, methyl ethyl ketone, carbon tetrachloride and kerosene. Methyl silicone oils are normally with low vapor pressure, high flash point and ignition point. Co-Formula methyl silicone fluids have excellent heat resistance, electrical insulation, weather resistance, hydrophobicity, physiological inertia and less surface tension. They also have superior chemical stability, low viscosity-temperature coefficient and high compression resistance.
Main Applications of Methyl Silicone Oils
Co-Formula methyl silicone oil are mainly used in electronics and electrical appliances, building materials, motor manufacturing, transportation, petrochemical industry, textiles, printing and dyeing, wire-making, post-finishing of various textiles to improve the takeoff elasticity, medical and health, aviation scientific research and military technology and other fields.
Co-Formula methyl silicone oil can be used for insulation, lubrication, shockproof, dustproof oil, dielectric liquid and heat carrier;
Co-Formula methyl silicone oil can be used as defoaming, stripping, paint and cosmetics additives;
Co-Formula methyl silicone oil can be used for sewing thread processing to improve lubrication and guarantee continuous line on high-speed sewing machine;
Co-Formula methyl silicone oil can be used for soft finishing of fabrics to increase the lubricity, smoothness, fullness and elasticity of fabrics.
