Dimethyl silicone oil is an artificial oil based on linear low viscosity polydimethylsiloxane which has a wide range of applications. It is odourless, tasteless and colourless and is therefore ideal for a variety of solutions. This thermally stable fluid is not easily degraded at high temperatures and therefore is an excellent choice for various industries. As a lubricant, compound, sealant, hydraulic fluid, and coating, silicone oil is becoming an increasingly popular choice. It is also used in sorbent production and resin synthesis and is additionally used in cosmetics through the role of emulsifier and conditioner.

dimethyl silicone oil

Dimethyl silicone oil is a synthetic oil composed of linear, low viscosity polydimethylsiloxane molecules. This colourless, odourless and tasteless oil has a wide range of uses due to its thermal stability and resistance to degradation at higher temperatures. It is commonly used as a lubricant, compound, sealant, coating and hydraulic fluid, in addition to being widely used in sorbent production and resin synthesis. It can also be found in some beauty products, as it acts as an excellent emulsifier or conditioner.

The repeating backbone of dimethyl silicone oil and other siloxane polymers consists of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms. Silicone oils are comprised of linear repeating chains of silicon and oxygen, with each silicon atom also having two carbon-based substituents, which are most often methyl groups. The silicone oils can possess a degree of polymerization, in other words the average number of repeating siloxane groups in a polymer chain, ranging from several units to several thousand units.

Replacing a small portion of the methyl groups with phenyl groups or amino functional groups can change how the siloxane polymers interact with other materials. Adding reactive organic groups to siloxane polymers can also allow for siloxane polymers to be integrated into various type of organic polymers, which can result in some unique properties when compared to standard organic polymers.

Dimethyl silicone oil–A Guide to Frequently Asked Questions

1.How is the high-temperature resistance of dimethyl silicone oil?

dimethyl silicone oil has excellent high-temperature resistance, with a maximum operating temperature of up to 300°C (572°F). It is also highly resistant to oxidation and thermal degradation, making it an ideal choice for applications that require high-temperature resistance.

2.What is the compressibility of silicone oil and can it be used for shock absorption or cushioning applications?

Silicone oil is highly compressible, making it an ideal material for shock absorption and cushioning applications. It is often used in automotive and aerospace applications, as well as in medical devices and consumer products. Its compressibility allows it to absorb and dissipate energy, making it an effective shock absorber.

3.What are the customer services for dimethyl silicone oil?

We put customer’s demand at first, and will give fast and effective response to customers within 24 hours;

To ensure on-time delivery, we choose reliable and flexible forwarder to provide safe and on-time shipment;

The regular delivery time of cargo is around 15-25 days on regular order

4.Is silicone oil suitable for sealing or vacuum system applications?

Yes, silicone oil is suitable for sealing and vacuum system applications. It is often used as a lubricant and sealant in vacuum systems, as it is non-reactive and has a low vapor pressure.

Is silicone oil suitable for sealing or vacuum system applications?

5.Is silicone oil suitable for medium applications in polymer polymerization or chemical reactions?

No, silicone oil is not suitable for medium applications in polymer polymerization or chemical reactions. Silicone oil is a non-reactive, inert material that is used as a lubricant and release agent. It is not suitable for use in chemical reactions or polymerization processes.

6.What issues should be noted when using silicone oil?

1. Silicone oil is flammable and should be kept away from open flames and other sources of ignition.

2. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to oil, as it may cause staining or discoloration.

3. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to heat, as it may cause damage.

4. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to chemicals, as it may cause corrosion or other damage.

5. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to UV light, as it may cause fading or discoloration.

6. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to water, as it may cause staining or discoloration.

7. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to abrasion, as it may cause scratching or other damage.

8. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to solvents, as it may cause damage.

9. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to acids, as it may cause corrosion or other damage.

10. Silicone oil should not be used on surfaces that are not resistant to alkalis, as it may cause corrosion or other damage.

7.Is silicone oil suitable for high-pressure or high load applications, such as lubricating mechanical bearings or gears?

No, silicone oil is not suitable for high-pressure or high load applications. It is not designed to withstand the extreme pressures and loads that are associated with these types of applications. Instead, it is best used for low-pressure and low-load applications, such as lubricating seals and O-rings.

8.Is silicone oil suitable for applications in the chemical, petroleum, or lubricant industries?

Yes, silicone oil is suitable for applications in the chemical, petroleum, and lubricant industries. It is often used as a lubricant, sealant, or release agent in these industries. It is also used as a heat transfer fluid, hydraulic fluid, and dielectric fluid.

Is silicone oil suitable for applications in the chemical, petroleum, or lubricant industries?

9.How volatile is silicone oil and can it be used in a closed environment?

Silicone oil is generally considered to be non-volatile, meaning it does not evaporate or break down easily. It can be used in a closed environment, but it is important to ensure that the environment is well-ventilated and that the silicone oil is not exposed to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight.
