F1006 is a clear, colorless polydimethyl siloxane fluid having silanol group in the terminal position.
Due to the silanol groups F1006 reacts with itself or with functional silanes in a condensation reaction.
The silanol fluids react with Si-H containing fluids by evolution of hydrogen.

The reactive F1006 is suitable for intermolecular crosslinking for achieving the desired increase in elasticity.
Reactive silicones serve not only to improve the properties of the material, but also the processing conditions. For example, they are used in the finishing of jeans and in pigment printing.
F1006 may be used to impart hydrophobicity to silica. For example, it can be mixed with silica at 0.5% to 10% weight level.
F1006 can be used neat, from solution or emulsion. Suitable solvents for F1006 are aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters, higher alcohols and ketones.
