Dow Corning produces both organic and synthetic polymers and is known as the
world leader in silicon-based polymers, or silicones.
Siloxane polymers occur in a variety of forms, fluids, gels, elastomers and
resins with typical use temperatures ranging from below -40°C to greater than
Applications for silicon based polymers span virtually industry in thousands
of applications which include adhering, sealing, and protecting everything from
integrated circuits to skyscrapers.
By increasing the molecular weight of a linear polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)
polymer, the viscosity at room temperature can be varied from less than 0.65 cP
to greater than 100,000,000 cP.
The low glass-transition temperature - coupled with a less
temperature-dependent viscosity and high thermal stability - makes
silicon-based polymers very useful for applications with a broad range of
