Abstract : This document reports a study to select a nonflammable hydraulic fluid for possible use in future military aircraft in which the Halocarbon Products Corporation AO-8 chlorotrifluoroethylene (CTFE) fluid was selected as the most promising fluid which meets the specified Aero Propulsion Laboratory and Aeronautical Systems Division nonflammability criteria. It also reports the results of the component compatability tests conducted to evaluate that fluid under typical system conditions.
