Momentive Performance Materials has announced the launch of Element14 polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) fluids. Available worldwide under brand name Element14, these fluids replace current regional low viscosity fluids, providing customers with easier ordering and supply chain management, standard global specifications, improved surety of supply, standardized containers and weights, and uniform label information.

“The launch of the Element14 fluid portfolio allows us to continue our transition from three affiliated, regionalized businesses to a single global entity,” said Mike Modak, Chief Commercial Officer, Momentive. “We are committed to being a global enterprise that offers consistent and recognizable advanced materials, regardless of geography. By standardizing our products, we will be able to deliver the same high level of quality and performance, no matter where our customers are in the world."

The first fluids offered in the Element14 family are Element14 PDMS 5 and Element14 PDMS 10. Both are low viscosity polydimethylsiloxane polymers with typical benefits that include temperature and oxidative stability, low flammability, low surface tension, spreadability, shear stability, lubricity, high compressibility, low vapor pressure, low odor and a non-oily, yet soft, silky, feel.

They may be considered for use across a variety of industrial applications, including polishes, personal care, textile spin finishes, paint and coatings additives, heat or mechanical transfer fluids, hydraulic fluids, electrical insulating fluids, lubricants, water repellents, mold release agents and anti-foams.

“Standardizing our fluid product line will allow our customers to order specific, consistent grades of their basic 'building block' products with greater confidence and ease, on a truly worldwide basis,” said Paula Pinto, Momentive Global Marketing Director, Silicone Fluids. “Following the launch of this Element14 low viscosity fluids line, in the near future we anticipate extending Element14 to our high- and medium-viscosity fluid portfolios.”
