WACKER® GM 196 is a brownish, high viscous polysiloxane which is modified by alkyl and aralkyl functions.

WACKER® GM 196 was developed for the formulation of release agents for the thermal molding of rubber, plastics, and low melting non-ferrous metals. Its chemical structure imbues it with the benefits of silicone fluids and mineral oils. WACKER® GM 196 is especially recommended for the formulation of release agents which are applied at very high temperatures of the die. An outstanding release effect is even obtained when extremely small amounts of WACKER® GM 196 are used.


The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label.


Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
