XIAMETER PMX-200 Silicone Fluid is highly soluble in organic solvents such as aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, and the halocarbon propellants used in aerosols. The fluid is easily emulsified in water with standard emulsifiers and normal emulsification techniques. XIAMETER PMX-200 Silicone Fluid is insoluble in water and many organic products.
Additive quantities as small as 0.1% may suffice where XIAMETER PMX-200 Silicone Fluidis to be used as a surface agent or for de-soaping creams and lotions. However, 1–10% is needed for applications such as hand creams and lotions to form a more uniform film and effective barrier.
This version of PMX-200 is 100cs (centi-stoke) viscosity.

Please Note: The viscosities generally used in formulating polishes are between 100 and 30,000 cs (centi-stoke). To obtain optimum results, in terms of ease of application and depth of gloss, it is preferable to use a blend of a low-viscosity fluid and a high-viscosity fluid (e.g. 3 parts XIAMETER PMX-200 Silicone Fluid 100 cs and 1 part XIAMETER PMX-200 Silicone Fluid 12,500 cs). The low-viscosity silicone fluid acts as a lubricant to make polish application and rubout easier, whereas the high-viscosity silicone fluid produces a greater depth of gloss. Since these polymers are inherently water-repellent, they will cause water to bead up on a treated surface rather than penetrate the polish film.
