Identification & Functionality


Applications & Uses

  • Waterborne silicone fluid for lubrication and siliconisation of glass, metals, plastics and rubber.
  • Excellent lubricating and release characteristics, Good wetting characteristics
How to Use

Before use, DuPont 365 35% Dimethicone NF Emulsion must be mixed thoroughly to ensure that the emulsion is homogeneous. Depending on application, the product may be diluted to around 1–5% silicone with ambient temperature Water For Injection (WFI) water. The resulting solution may be applied to articles by spraying, brushing, wiping or using a dipping bath.
After the water has evaporated, which can be accelerated with heat, the resultant coating is comprised mainly of a lubricious, hydrophobic polydimethylsiloxane fluid film. If the treated article can tolerate heat, the durability of the coating may be enhanced by baking; this step can be combined with the water evaporation step. Recommended baking conditions include a temperature less than 200°C to avoid the possibility of oxidation and formaldehyde formation. A cloudy appearance on the surface of a treated article after baking may indicate excessive application or over-baking.
