Silicone Oil 30.000 cSt
- Easy to add
- For addition and condensation silicone
- Colorless and odorless
- Safe to use
- Thick liquid / high viscosity (30.000 cSt)
This very thick / high viscosity silicone oil 100.000 cSt. can be added to pourable silicone so that it will be softer and more flexible. By adding the oil, the silicone will be more elastic. The oil can also be used to manually smooth out thickened silicone that has been brushed onto a surface.
The silicone oil is very thick which will make low viscosity silicone mix out easily. Therefore it is advisable to mix prior to casting.
This silicone is also usable for many other applications like dampeners and on artificial ski slopes or as a grease in a visco clutch and so on.
This silicon oil is suitable to be used in products that may come in contact with food or beverages according to FDA 21 CFR Par177.2600
- Viscosity: 30.000 cSt
- Ignition Temperature: >230°C
- Freezing point: -60°C
- Density at 25°C: 0.95
- Surface tension: 20.1 mN/m
- Refractive Index at 25°C: 1.402
Take the desired amount of the silicone A component and add the appropriate amount of B-component (shown in the data sheet of your silicone). Stir the mixture well. Add the silicone oil to the silicone mixture. By varying between 1% and 10% (weight) oil, you can decide how much softer / flexible the end result will be.
Adding 8% oil is seen by many people to be an adequate reduction of the hardness (about 3-5 shore points) and is recommended. Adding more than 10% of the oil can have unacceptable impact on the final strength of the cured silicone and is therefore not recommended.
The addition of silicone oil is a form of adjusting your silicones. You should be aware that the final values, will differ from the values indicated on the data sheets of the silicone.
Oil does not actively participate in the silicone network. This means it will be able to migrate out of the silicone over many years. This process is sped up when the silicone are under pressure or bend. This will result in a greasy layer on the silicone surface and possible shrinkage of the rubber.
At least 5 years.
