Hazardous Polymerization: May occur
Primary forms of dimethyl cyclosiloxanes are mainly used for ring-opening polymerization to form silicone oils, silicone rubbers, and silicone resins of different polymerization degrees. These polymers are further processed into products for a wide range of applications in construction, electronics, textiles, automotive, personal care, food, machining, and to a lesser extent, direct applications.
Silicone resin derivatives, used as stabilizers, suspending agents, or thickening agents.
Silicone: A substance made from silica (sand is a type of silica). Since silicone has liquid properties, which is easy to smear on the skin, and has a silky touch when applied to the skin, has moisturizing properties, and actually has a water retention function when the skin is wet. There are also silicone resins that promote wound healing and improve the appearance of skin scars.
