SF 1154 GE Silicone Fluid, also known as polydimethylsiloxane, is a silicone-based organic compound with a variety of applications. It is commonly used as an industrial lubricant, a hydraulic fluid, and a dielectric fluid for electrical insulation. It is also used in cosmetics, personal care products, and medical devices.
When rubber materials are exposed to SF 1154 GE Silicone Fluid, they can become brittle and harden, leading to cracking and eventual failure of the rubber component. Additionally, the fluid can seep into the rubber and cause swelling, which can cause the rubber to lose strength, become deformed, and potentially fail. The presence of the silicone fluid can also reduce the rubber’s ability to withstand mechanical stress, leading to premature failure.
