How can different pure D5’s have different flash points?
I live in Hawaii…so flashpoint is a critical concern for me receiving ingredients. I know that some vendors are blending to get a higher flash point.
I have been able to purchase what I am being told is pure Cyclopentasiloxane (D5), and able to ship USPS (legally). I think in the past…I was getting it from a vendor (repacker) that simply did not heed the rules. But as they sold out to a company, I refuse to do business with, I had to scramble for a new vendor. The new vendor says their product is USPS shippable, and pure D5…can this be right?
So, I guess what I am asking….can D5 be made (pure)…with considerable variation in flash point?
Flashpoint is being advertised as 170F or 76.66C.
I guess the question that begs to be asked…will performance (viscosity) be altered…as the flashpoint increases?
