65 centistokes for the lowest viscosity silicone oil to tens of millions of centistokes for silicone gum.
Attempts have been made to overcome this problem by including silicone emulsions with high internal viscosities; typically greater than 100,000 centistokes.
Dimethyl-polysiloxane fluids with viscosities of 12,500 and 30,000 centistokes reportedly give the greatest effectiveness when added to most thermoplastics, including nylons and styrenics.
Its viscosity is greater than 15 million centistokes (cSt), compared with 60,000 to 100,000 cSt for silicone oils.
