Silicones are widely utilized as lubricants or sealants in the industrial segment. Silicone based lubricants are not only limited to maintenance and assembly, they are also used in chemical, automotive or food industries. Silicones have been utilized as lubricants since long time in the form of a PDMS compound which is referred to as a “noncuring sealant” and also called as “vacuum grease” for lubricating purpose. This application shows the properties of silicones that make them superior as compared to their counterparts in various applications, hence siloxane copolymer lubricants can be utilized over a wide range of temperature range from synthesis at low temperature as with liquid ammonia to distillation under vacuum at high temperatures

Siloxane copolymer lubricants possess various properties as compared to their counterparts available in the market such as high thermal stability across wide temperature range (-35 to 220 degree Celsius), compatibility with most of the elastomers and plastics, better corrosion resistance, increased application lifetime due to high oxidative and thermal stability, formulation capability with various thickener systems etc. Siloxane copolymer lubricants offer high temperature lubricity without sacrificing low-temperature performance. Combining phenyl methyl and fluoro functional branches to a siloxane backbone offers optimized wear resistance and thermal stability in a copolymer resulting in a unique properties.

Siloxane copolymer lubricants are utilized for various applications such as plastic gears, brake caliper, chemical mixers and pumps, brake compressor, circuit breakers, overrunning clutch, damping grease etc.
