Di – Electric Silicone Grease

Silicone oil and a thickener are combined to create silicone grease, also known as dielectric grease, which is a waterproof lubricant. Amorphous fumed silica is most frequently used as the thickener and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as the silicone oil. With this recipe, silicone grease is a transparent, viscous mixture whose precise qualities rely on the kind and quantity of its constituent parts. Fluorinated silicones or, for low-temperature applications, PDMS with certain phenyl substituents in place of methyl groups are used to create more specific silicone greases. Other thickeners, such as stearates and powdered polytetrafluorethylene, may be employed (PTFE).

A hydrophobic, translucent silicone dielectric compound called silicone grease provides the best possible corrosion and water resistance. A layer of non-hardening dielectric paste is applied to both indoor and outdoor electrical wiring to seal, waterproof, lubricate, and insulate them. It offers ecological preservation without impeding connection or resulting in short circuits since it is electrically insulating but still permits current to pass through metal contacts. Additionally, it works well to lubricate and seal rubber and plastic components.

Transformers, disconnects, switching mechanisms, electrical contacts, outdoor lighting, scoreboards, traffic lights, high voltage poles, spark plugs, battery terminals, fasteners, seals, gaskets, plastic insulators, and O-rings are all frequently utilized with silicone dielectric grease. In tough weather and marine situations, this silicone-based grease is helpful.
