Dimethicone is a type of polymer that belongs to a group of polymeric organosilicon substances that are commonly referred to as silicones. Dimethicone is the most widely used and applicable silicon-based organic polymer, and is particularly known for its strange rheological properties. Dimethicone is also called Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). Dimethicone is optically clear, non-toxic and non-flammable polymer. It has many applications due to its performance properties such as low viscosity variety to temperature change, excellent thermal stability, low surface tension, and excellent dielectric properties.
