Modified silicone fluids combine the characteristics of dimethyl silicone fluid with the unique properties of various organic groups. Dimethyl silicone fluid offers the characteristics of water repellency, chemical stability, defoaming properties and is physiologically inert. By introducing an organic group into some of the methyl groups, the modification can add properties such as water solubility, paintability, lubricity, etc. Common applications include: paint additives, textile treatment agents, resin modifiers, waxes, plastic additives and more.
Reactive silicone fluids are formed by adding an additional organic group to the physiologically inert dimethyl silicone fluid. All reactive silicone fluids feature reactivity. Additional features vary based on the type of modification including water repellency, flexibility, oxygen permeability, etc. Organic groups that will form reactive modified silicone fluids include: amino-modified, epoxy-modified, cabinol-modified, carboxyl-modified and more.View Details
Non-reactive silicone fluids are modified silicone fluids where an additional organic group has been added to the physiologically inert dimethyl silicone fluid. Characteristics vary depending on the added organic group but may feature: water solubility, releasability, lubricity, chemical resistance and more. None of the non-reactive modified silicone fluids feature reactivity. Applications include use as emulsifiers, foaming agents, defoamers, lubricants, textile treatment agents, etc.View Details
