Silanes

A silane molecule is made up of one central silicon atom attached to a combination of nearly any four organic or inorganic reactive or non-reactive groups. A silane that contains at least one carbon-silicon bond structure is known as an organosilane. 

Silanes react with themselves and any hydroxyl groups within inorganic substrates, often when moisture is present, to form a strong chemical bond that provides protection and durability. They can also be used as intermediates that react to produce silicates and siliconates, which offer stain resistance and improved physical properties in water-dilutable, neat products.

Silicone Fluids

Silicone fluids (sometimes referred to as silicone oils) are clear polydimethylsiloxane fluids in the family of silicones with varying viscosities ranging from free-flowing low-viscosity fluids to thicker, more viscous high or ultra-high viscosity fluids. Silicone fluids exhibit excellent thermal stability and resistance to moisture with little viscosity change over a wide range of temperatures. The typical utilization for silicone fluids can range from industrial uses to beauty and personal care applications and more.

Univar Solutions offers a reliable supply of low, intermediate, high, and ultra-high viscosity XIAMETER™ PMX-200 Dimethicone Fluids nationwide.  With more than 120 distribution centers, our private fleet, and professional staff, we provide you with proven reliability and quality service at every touchpoint.

The INCI name for the XIAMETER™ PMX-200 Fluids is dimethicone.
