Gee, my Perry's Chemical Engineering Handbook and International Critical
Tables book both have a table on the compressibility of fluids and it
includes Silicon but it is pretty darn small.

Subject: Re: Brake Fluids - Compressability?
Any student of physics knows that liquids do not compress.
Fluids do have the ability to become mixed with gases which are
The silicon fluid will tend to hold small amounts of gasses in
as they don't bubble they are difficult to completely remove causing
appearance that the silicon fluid is compressing. It is really the
gas. In DOT 3 & 4 fluids the gasses form bubbles and can be
