Abstract

It has been discovered that moderately branched but primarily linear polydimethyl siloxane fluids are extraordinarily suited as release fluids for use on a fuser roll in an electrostatographic copying machine. A specific example of such a moderately branched but primarily linear polydimethyl siloxane fluid has the following s t ructu r a1 fo rm ula :
