Silicone Oils

At IKV, we supply a range of silicone fluids of various viscosities, types and grades. Silicone oils are based on a Si-O-Si-O link where the free valances are saturated by methyl (CH3 ) or phenyl (C6H5) groups. Phenylmethylpolysiloxane oils are preferred for bearings because of their higher lubricating power on steels.

Although the increase of phenyl groups in lubricant reduces the viscosity index and oil flow point, these oils are particularly interesting at extreme temperatures where water or high vacuums are a factor.

Our range include polysiloxane and phenylmethyl silicone oils.

Silicone has excellent thermal and chemical resistance and offers good compatibility with the majority of materials including elastomers and plastics (with the exception of silicone rubbers).

These multifunction silicone fluids are used as lubricants, heat transfer fluids, dielectric oils and mould release agents.  °C

Our IKV-TRIBOSIL range of multifunction silicone fluids are used as lubricant, heat transfer fluid, di-electric oil and priming oil of elastomers. They have good chemical and thermical resistance.

The IKV TRIBOSIL MHL 280 and IKV TRIBOSIL MHL 8000 are also NSF-H1 approved for use in the food industry.

The IKV TRIBOSIL PHL 400 has good lubricating characteristics at high temperature. See below details of our range:-
