GELEST: Silicone Fluids Brochure

New hydrophilic and polar silicones, along with a wider range of organic compatible fluids, are included in the newly expanded brochure “Silicone Fluids: Stable Inert Media.” The 32-page brochure provides performance data and application information that can help engineers and scientists to make the most appropriate selections from over 100 fluids and materials

Silicone fluids, the only major class of polymers that are products of inorganic chemistry, have a range of properties not available with fluids based on petroleum or organic chemistry. They encompass a range of diverse materials with a number of performance characteristics, including wide service temperature range; thermal, shear, and dielectric stability; chemical inertness; and low toxicity, among others. These features reportedly facilitated their adoption as dielectric, hydraulic, heat transfer, power transmission and damping fluids. They have also been incorporated into plastics and rubbers as process and release aids, into coatings for flow and level control, and into process streams as antifoams.
