Siloxane Powders

Aiding assembly  

Dow siloxane powders can: 

  • Significantly reduce friction  
  • Increase the lubricity of molded plastics  
  • Increase the mar and scratch resistance of molded-in-color electronics components

Dow products also serve as processing aids: 

  • Improve mold flow to permit the production of thin-wall housings for small electronics components 
  • Increase fire retardance of housings and components used in electronics components  

Designers of components and formulators of materials used within the telecommunications and electronics industries use siloxane powders for a number of diverse applications. A typical application includes fiber optic ducts, power switches, gears that must function with little or no external lubrication. In such applications, the ultra-high molecular weight polymers improve lubricity and slip, reducing the coefficient of friction in the gear assembly.
