About Dimethyl Silicones Fluids

Chemical inertness, non-corrosivity, thermal stability, lubricity and low levels of toxicity make dimethyl silicone fluids the product of choice for many diverse applications. They are among the most versatile, cost-effective silicones used for release agents, lubricants and polishes.

Genesee Polymers manufactures dimethyl silicone fluids that range in viscosity from 100 to 10,000 cPs. These are designated GP-10(V) where V is the viscosity of the fluid in centipoise (cPs). The following selection table shows the GP-10 products as well as emulsified versions if available.  Other viscosity dimethyl silicone fluids and emulsions may be available upon request.
