Silicone oil is used in high temperature open systems, closed systems and circulating, closed loop and heat transfer baths. It is used as a high temperature fluid for laboratory research apparatus and instruments. It is also used as a calibration media in temperature controlled baths.
Viscosity at temperature:
Although it has a pour point of -30°C, this product is not recommended for use in low temperature bath applications due to its acutely higher viscosities at lower temperatures.
