Product Overview
Element14™ PDMS 500 is a linear polydimethylsiloxane with a viscosity of 500 centipoise (cps). Element14™ PDMS fluids can stay in liquid form over a wide range of temperatures and pressures. As a result they are used in applications that require fluid properties in harsh environments. In mechanically demanding applications they provide excellent shear stability and good lubrication or slip.
