Why is dimethyl silicone oil called a universal fluid?
It contains the most easily obtainable element on Earth, which is widely distributed in nature and mainly exists in the form of compounds in the minerals that make up the crust. Have you guessed the name of this element and the liquid in the picture now? It is a universal fluid synthesized through multiple processes from silicon ore - dimethyl silicone oil!
Dimethyl silicone oil is odorless and non-toxic, with physiological inertness, good chemical stability, electrical conductivity, and weather resistance. It has a wide viscosity range, low freezing point, high flash point, good hydrophobicity, and high shear resistance. It can be used for a long time at temperatures ranging from 50 to 180oC.
Saying that silicone oil is omnipotent is not just a casual statement, because silicone oil is colorless and transparent, has high flash point, is safe, environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and has excellent insulation, lubrication, and flow properties, which endows it with a very wide range of applications: electronic appliances, building materials, motor manufacturing, textiles, printing and dyeing, post-processing of various textile fabrics to improve the smoothness and elasticity, as well as fields such as medicine and health, aviation research, and military technology.
Silicone oil can be directly used or processed into lotion widely used in daily chemical, textile, rubber and plastic industries through various emulsification processes., It can also be modified to produce lubricants, sealants, waterproofing agents, rust inhibitors, etc. It is used as a surface lubricant, skin protector, drug carrier, and diluent for injections in the pharmaceutical field. In aviation research and military technology, dimethyl silicone oil is applied in high-temperature lubrication, anti-corrosion, insulation, shock absorption, and other aspects to meet the needs of extreme environments. In addition, dimethyl silicone oil also has excellent antioxidant performance and chemical stability, which can work stably for a long time under harsh conditions such as high temperature, high pressure, acid and alkali. It can also be compatible with many other materials and does not undergo chemical reactions with most substances, making it widely used as a stabilizer and thickener in various mixtures. Overall, due to its excellent physical and chemical properties, as well as its ability to adapt to a wide range of working conditions, dimethyl silicone oil has become a widely used universal fluid. Dimethyl silicone oil can play an important role in industrial production, scientific research, and daily life, meeting various needs.
