Silicone lubricants not only feature low frictional properties, but they also are very resistant to both oxidation and moisture over time. They may be formulated into lubricating greases, compounds, dispersions or pastes.
Phenylsilicones in particular maintain performance in low-temperature applications down to approximately -73°C. They typically are formulated into greases used in bearing applications at extreme temperatures.
Other silicones may be formulated into compounds used for rubber or plastic lubrication in either static or dynamic applications.
