General Purpose Silicone

Silicone viscosity standard fluids are most commonly used to verify calibration of Brookfield lab viscometers/ rheometers and are less temperature sensitive than mineral oils.

General purpose silicone fluids are the most commonly used standard for verifying calibration of your Brookfield Viscometer/Rheometer. Silicone Standards are Newtonian fluids which are accurate to ±1% of viscosity value. Silicone fluids provide excellent temperature stability and are less temperature sensitive than oil viscosity standards. Brookfield Viscosity Standards are certified by methods traceable to the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The selection of one or two fluids will normally provide sufficient measurement points to verify calibration of your instrument. All fluids are supplied in ½ liter (1 pint) containers complete with a certificate of calibration.

Confused about which standards you need? See our FAQ section.

REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The law entered into force on 1 June 2007.

The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
