Material is flammable before film is formed and HCl fumes are generated in its application. Fluid is acidic during application and care should be taken to avoid corrosion of metal that comes into contact with the liquid. After application, the surface is neutral.
For siliconizing glass surfaces use Thermo Scientific™ Hydrocarbon Soluble Siliconizing Fluid. This short chain, clear polymeric silicone fluid consists primarily of dichlorooctamethyltetrasiloxane and is soluble in organic solvents. When applied to glass, quartz or similar products, the unhydrolyzed chlorines present on the chain react with surface silanols to form a neutral, hydrophobic and tiightly bonded film over the entire surface. It is excellent for modifying metals, certain plastics, ceramics and fiber optics.
Hydrocarbon Soluble Siliconizing Fluid is acidic and care should be taken to avoid corrosion of metal that comes into contact with the liquid.
The fluid is acidic only during application; after application, the surface is neutral.
