​When stored in its original packaging at a temperature of between -20°C and +50°C, BLUESIL FLD 516 E may be stored for up to 9 months from its date of manufacture.

Comply with the storage instructions and expiry date marked on the packaging.

Beyond this date, Bluestar Silicones no longer guarantees that the product meets the sales specifications.

Note: Over time during storage, intermolecular association via its hydroxyl functionalities may result in turbidity and gelling of BLUESIL FLD 516 E. This does not adversely affect performance and is reversible by heating the product to 70°C, assisted by stirring, for a period that may extend to several days.

Such treatment is acceptable thanks to the high temperature resistance of BLUESIL FLD 516 E, but should be applied only immediately before use, not repeatedly.

The product should not be stored long-term at elevated temperature to avoid this reversible behaviour that is innate to the chemistry that provides the performance of BLUESIL FLD 516 E.

Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Store in a cool, dry place with adequate ventilation. Keep away from incompatible materials, open flames, and high temperatures. Avoid contact with oxidizing agents. Suitable containers: Steel drums coated with epoxy-resin.Please consult the Safety Data Sheet of this product.

Functional Fluid


BLUESIL FLD 516 E may be used in applications where it is desirable to polymerise or co-polymerise the product, without need for heating, via its reactive hydroxyl functionalities and where the high temperature resistance, elevated refractive index (RI) and enhanced organo-compatibility provided by its phenyl modification is beneficial.

Encapsulation of LEDs is an application that makes use of all these features and benefits.
