  • Best Practices for Dow 111 Silicone Compound

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      To any surface that will be painted or finished. Such coatings may not adhere to the silicone-treated surfaces. If contaminated by a silicone coating, parts can be wiped or washed with solvent or washed with detergent.

      For best results, clean and dry surfaces before application.

    2. Application

      Dow Corning silicone compounds can be applied by hand, by specially designed automated equipment, or by brushing or wiping. When using some high pressure dispensing equipment, separation and compaction can occur. Certain designs of grease guns may seize with silicone compounds

      test prior to using. Where a thinner consistency is needed, the compound can be dispersed in a solvent and applied by brushing or spraying.
