Straight silicone fluids

Straight silicone fluid is the generic name for three main types of silicone fluids that are straight-chain polymers formed of siloxane bonds. These three are dimethyl silicone fluid, methylphenyl silicone fluid, and methyl hydrogen silicone fluid.

For product information, click on the fluid type or structural formula.

Dimethyl silicone fluid

Dimethyl silicone fluid

Methyl groups are introduced into all side chains and both ends of the polysiloxane.

Methylphenyl silicone fluid

Methylphenyl silicone fluid

Phenyl groups are introduced into some of the side chains of the polysiloxane.

Methylhydrogen silicone fluid

Methylhydrogen silicone fluid

Hydrogen is introduced into some of the side chains of the polysiloxane.

Modified silicone fluids

Silicone fluids with organic groups introduced into the ends and side chains are called modified silicone fluids. They are categorized into four main types, according to the bonding position of the organic groups. They are further classified as reactive or non-reactive silicone fluids, according to the behavior of their organic groups.

For product information, click on the organic group name.

Single-end type

Organic groups are introduced into one end of the polysiloxane.
