Wacker Belsil® DM 1000000 Dimethicone
Categories: Fluid; Polymer

Material Notes: BELSIL® DM 1 000 000 is a linear, non-reactive, unmodified polydimethylsiloxane. It is a dimethicone with a viscosity of 1 000 000 mm²/s. BELSIL® DM 1 000 000 is characterized by low surface tension and high spreading coefficient. Due to its flexible polymer backbone, this dimethicone has high permeability to gases (e.g. water, vapor, oxygen), which allows respiration of the skin.

Application: High-viscous BELSIL® DM 1 000 000 is widely used in a diverse range of personal-care formulations. Dimethicones provide a hydrophobic, protective, but breathable barrier for the skin, imparting softness and emolliency. They improve the water resistance of various products, such as sun screens. Simultaneously, they prevent stickiness in skin-care as well as in color-cosmetics formulations. In hair-care products, high-viscous dimethicones are among the most commonly used conditioning additives. They improve both wet and dry combability, impart humidity resistance and a soft feel to the hair, and enhance shine.

INCI name: Dimethicone
