SILFAR® 100 is a polydimethylsiloxane obtained by hydrolysis and polycondensation of dichlorodimethyl-silane and chlorotrimethylsilane. The degree of polymerization (n) is such that the mean kinematic viscosity is 100mm²/s at 25°C.
SILFAR® 100 complies with the requirements set down in the monographs Dimeticone (EP) and "Dimethicone" (USP / NF). Wacker explicitly rules out the use of SILFAR® 100 for parenteral applications.
National regulations applicable in the countries concerned must be observed.
SILFAR® 100 is used predominantly in the pharmaceutical sector e.g. as an basic raw material in phamaceutical formulations.
