BELSIL® DM 100000
BELSIL® DM 100000 is a linear, non-reactive, unmodified polydimethylsiloxane. It is a dimethicone with a viscosity of 100 000 mm²/s. BELSIL® DM 100000 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, vapour, oxygen), which allows respiration of the skin.
High-viscosity BELSIL® DM 100000 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 spreading characteristics, enhance lustre, and prevent stickiness in skin-care as well as in colour-cosmetics compositions. In hair-care products, high-viscosity 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.
Maximum temperature allowed during storage and transportation: 50 °C 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.
