High temperature, high quality, low toxicity silicone oil, suitable for use with Thiele�s melting point apparatus. This oil is a clear, odourless and neutral (chemically inert) liquid. The viscosity shows very little change with temperature variation and it is resistant to both high and low temperature extremes. Its uses also include: Heat transfer media; Thermal transfer fluids; Hydraulic fluids; Dielectrics fluids; Water repellents; Lubricants.

Note: This oil is also useful for fixing broken spirit columns in laboratory thermometers reading up to 150°C. Simply place some oil in a beaker, stand the thermometers for fixing in the oil so that the end bulb is covered and carefully bring the temperature up above the maximum temperature reading of the thermometer. The broken column moves up into the top of the thermometer, which can then be removed from the heat and allowed to cool slowly. This should result in a complete spirit column descending back down the bore of the thermometer.
