Wacker Wacker® AK 5000 Silicone Fluid
Categories: Fluid; Polymer; Thermoset; Silicone

Material Notes: Product description: WACKER® AK 5 000 is a linear, non-reactive polydimethylsiloxane with a viscosity of approx. 5 000 mm²/s. Due to its chemical structure, WACKER® AK 5 000 has an outstanding property profile, which sets it apart from organic materials such as mineral oils.

Properties: WACKER® AK 5 000 is a clear, odorless and colorless liquid.

Special features:

  • minimal change in physical properties over a broad temperature range
  • excellent water-repellent properties
  • good dielectric properties
  • low surface tension and thus high surface activity
  • chemically highly unreactive
  • low solidifying point
  • high flash point
  • high heat resistance
  • good solubility in a wide range of solvents
Application:
  • release agent
  • lubricant
  • hydraulic fluid
  • antifoam agent
  • water-repellent agent
  • liquid dielectric for electrical and electronic equipment
  • polish additive
  • plastics additive
  • additive for textile and fiber auxiliaries
For pharmaceutical applications, manufacturer recommends silicone fluids from the SILFAR® line. Silicone fluids from the BELSIL® line are available for the cosmetic sector. Whenever particularly high heat and shear resistance is required, manufacturer ecommends silicone fluids from the AK stab, AK visc and AKC product lines. Specialty grades of the product (available as WACKER® PLASTICIZER) will be needed for use as a silicone plasticizer in RTV-1 sealants.
