Silicone oil used as a lubricant is a poly(dimethylsiloxane) obtained by hydrolysis and polycondensation of dichlorodimethylsilane and chlorotrimethylsilane. Different grades exist which are characterised by a number indicating the nominal viscosity placed after the name.
Silicone oil used as lubricants have a degree of polymerisation (n = 400 to 1200) such that their kinematic viscosities are nominally between 1000 mm2-s-1 and 30 000 mm2-s-1.
