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.
