Abstract : Synthesis and evaluation data on five chemical classes as possible base stocks for fire-resistant hydraulic fluids for submarines are reported. The classes are: substituted polyaromatic ethers; halogenated amines; omega, omega'-bis (halophenyl) alkanes; sulfones; and phosphoruscontaining compounds. They were evaluated for fire-resistance (as measured by autoignition temperature, 1300 F. molten metal test, flash-and fire points), thermal stability, fluid properties (including viscosity and fluid range), compatibility with alkyd base paints, O-ring Sealants and electrical conduit sheathing.
