This report reviews the potential environmental hazard from the commercial use of large quantities of liquid siloxanes which are used for the most part in waxes, polishes, cosmetics, and in the foaming of polyurethane; and as lubricants, antifoaming agents, release agents, and protective coatings for textiles, glass and leather. Polydimethylsiloxane and polymethylphenylsiloxane were of major interest as commercial products, although low molecular weight siloxanes were also reviewed. Information is presented on the chemical properties, production methods, quantities produced and released, commercial uses and factors affecting environmental contamination as well as data on health and biological effects.
