Sil-1000 D.O.R.C. Silicone Oil is an ultra purified silicone oil which leads a maximum interfacial tension and minimizes interactions between tissues, cells and endo-tamponades media. The physical properties include a combination of specific gravity, refractive index and surface tension. The choice of viscosity offers an optimum balance between easy injection and a stable temporary tamponade.
