What are the characteristics of silicone oil products

Silicone oil has many special properties, such as low temperature viscosity coefficient, high and low temperature resistance, oxidation resistance, high flash point, low volatility, good insulation, low surface tension, non-corrosion to metals, non-toxic, etc. Because of these characteristics, silicone oil has excellent effects in many applications. Among various silicone oils, methyl silicone oil is the most widely used and is the most important variety in silicone oil, followed by methyl phenyl silicone oil. Various functional silicone oils and modified silicone oils are mainly used for special purposes. It is a colorless, odorless, non-toxic, non-volatile liquid.

Silicone oil has various viscosities. It has higher heat resistance, water resistance, electrical insulation and lower surface tension. Commonly used as high-grade lubricating oil, anti-vibration oil, insulating oil, defoamer, release agent, polishing agent, release agent and vacuum diffusion pump oil, etc.; emulsion can be used for car tire polishing, dashboard polishing, etc.

Methyl silicone oil is the most commonly used. After emulsification or modification, it is used in textile finishing for smooth and soft hand feeling finishing. Emulsified silicone oil is also added to the shampoo of daily care products to improve the lubricity of the hair. In addition, there are ethyl silicone oil, methyl phenyl silicone oil, nitrile silicone oil, polyether modified silicone oil (water-soluble silicone oil) and so on.
