What are Siloxane Additives?

Siloxane additives are highly effective internal and external lubricants. These plastic additives offer a number of significant processing advantages and surface improvements such as scratch and abrasion resistance while reducing friction.

Unlike conventional silicone-based materials, they are ultra high molecular weight polymers that overcome the handling problems and surface adhesion difficulties that have prevented the widespread use of lower molecular weight forms of plastic additives in the industry.

Dow Corning Multibase has developed two special solid forms of these plastic additives:

1. Siloxane masterbatches
2. Siloxane powders
