Polymer Solutions


  • 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 150°C.

  • 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 temperatures.

Dow Corning is a provider of innovative silicon-based products and technologies that can be designed and delivered to meet your exact needs. Dow Corning has helped its customers with solutions that go beyond what you would get from any other supplier. We are more than a supplier to our customers; we are their partners and allies.
