Synthetics

DOWTHERM™ synthetic organic fluids offer exceptional thermal stability, meaning more efficient heat transfer, longer fluid life and enhanced operating economics.

SYLTHERM† 1 silicone fluids are known for low viscosity offering excellent heat transfer performance and long service life.

A synthetic organic or silicone fluid’s maximum recommended use temperature is an indication of the high temperature thermal stability properties of that fluid. While the initial purchase cost of silicone fluids are typically more expensive than synthetic organic fluids, silicone fluids often have a lower long-term operating cost because they do not degrade like typical hydrocarbon fluids and as a result, rarely need to be replaced.
