Default Who makes a 5 wt shock oil?

Do you know who makes a 5 wt (about 50 CentiStokes) SILICONE shock oil?

I can only find as low as 10wt.

Thanks!

I've made a dual rate shock prototype and I am experimenting with different weight oils. For example, with this dual rate design, it acts like a 30 wt shock in compression but a 10 wt shock in rebound.

Ultimately, I want a low wt oil so I can just mix it in various ratios with a higher wt oil to get in between resultant wts: http://www.gesilicones.com/gesilwiza...ng/fluid2.html
