Silicone Compound and greases are based on silicone fluids and contain either a non-soap thickener or are thickened with Lithium soap. These greases are free from petroleum products, do not attack plastic substrates and therefore are outstanding lubricants for plastic, rubber and glass.
Silicone compounds are non-carbonizing, oxidation resistant, non-solidifying, bleed and drip resistant, mild acid and alkali resistant, moisture resistant and are serviceable over a wide temperature range from -40°C upto 200°C.
They exhibit outstanding resistance to extreme weather conditions and have excellent dielectric properties.
A special version of silicone compound that contains metallic oxides is used as a heat transfer medium for electronic components and is often referred to as ‘Heat-Sink Compound’.
They are non-carbonizing, non-oxidizing, non toxic and chemically inert in nature.
They are compatible with most plastics and elastomers.
