Silicones are synthetic high performance polymers made from silicon and oxygen, two of the most common elements found on the surface of the earth. They are one of the most versatile polymers in existence today. Silicone exist in various forms, ranging from fluids, resins, and gels to tough, stiff, and strong elastomers.
Silicone fluids are a family of synthetic liquids in which the groups identified as methyl groups may represent any organic groups. The organic groups can be all same or different. The value of n determines the molecular weight of the silicone fluid, which in turn determines its viscosity.
Silicone oil is comparable to a hydrocarbon oil except that its molecular chain replaces carbon units with siloxane units. This oil is a non-flammable, non-toxic, tasteless, and odourless material. It is widely used by various end-user industry, such as textile, automotive, electrical & electronics, medical and many other industries. Food grade versions of this oil are utilized by restaurants and breweries. The viscosity range of silicone oil lies between 0.65 to 1,000,000 cst.
