XIAMETER® Silicones Simplified - from Dow Corning

Impact Of Polymer Viscosity On Silicone Emulsions

XIAMETER® brand silicone emulsions are based on different-viscosity silicone polymers. The higher the viscosity of the silicone fluid used in the emulsion, the more substantive the resulting emulsion will be.

Medium-viscosity silicone fluids yield emulsions that deliver good wet-out and gloss with a minimum of smear.

High-viscosity silicone fluids yield emulsions that deliver excellent gloss, conditioning and shine, and more efficient release.

Ultra-high-viscosity silicone gums yield emulsions that deliver superior gloss.
