Element14 PDMS fluids can stay in liquid form at conditions that cause organic polymers to become greases, waxes or solids. Because the viscosity of Element14 fluids changes very little with temperature, pressure, mechanical stress or chemical exposure, they can excel in applications requiring fluid properties in harsh environments. With relatively stable viscosity and other excellent properties Element14 fluids are strong candidates to consider for use in a wide range of applications:
- In mechanically demanding applications such as hydraulics and damping, Element14 fluids typically provide extremely good shear stability and excellent lubrication or slip.
- Because of their unusually low interfacial tension, Element14 fluids are excellent to consider for applications that require high surface activity and great spreading or penetration. Mold releases, polishes and cosmetics are examples of products that can benefit from these characteristics.
- These fluids can be considered for liquid dielectrics; measurements have revealed that the dielectric strength, volume resistivity, dielectric constant and dissipation factor are little affected by temperatures over a wide range.
Momentive has standardized the formulation, labeling and ordering of the Element14 products around the world, ensuring reliable consistency for our global customers in all regions. And we continue to work closelywith customers to help them optimize each Element14 application.
