Product Description

These low-viscosity silicone fluids offer excellent heat transfer performance and long service life. They are designed for high and low liquid phase heat transfer mediums and also offer low odor and toxicity. While the initial purchase cost of silicone fluids are typically more expensive than synthetic organic fluids, silicone fluids often have a lower long-term operating cost because they do not degrade like other fluids or require top-off fills.
