Silicone Greases: Advantages and Applications

Silicone greases provide parts lubrication and electrical insulation for applications that require resistance to demanding temperatures, pressures, and loads. These industrial lubricants have excellent fluidity at low temperatures and exhibit low volatility and good thermal stability at high temperatures. Compared to petroleum-based lubricants, silicone greases also have a wider useful temperature range.   Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) supplies silicone greases, lubricating [...]

Silicone Greases for Sealing and Insulation

Silicone greases are waterproof lubricants that provide sealing and insulation for mechanical, electrical, military, marine, and many other applications. They’re made by combining a silicone oil with a special thickener, and are supplied in tubes, jars, cartridges, and plastic pails as a translucent, whitish, viscous paste. Many different types of silicone greases are available, so it’s important to select a lubricating compound that’s right for your application. Specialty [...]
