Element 14PDMS 5-A is a linear polydimethylsiloxane with a viscosity of 1000 centipoise (cps). Element14 PDMS fluids can stay in liquid form over a wide range of temperatures and pressures. As a result they are used in applications that require fluid properties in harsh environments. In mechanically demanding applications they provide excellent shear stability and good lubrication or slip.
