Abstract:

The development of a water-base hydraulic fluid which 1 yields a fire-resistant non-aqueous residue, 2 is compatible with materials of construction and sea-water contamination, 3 satisfactorily lubricates shipboard pumps, 4 presents no unusual storage or handling problems, and 5 exhibits no toxicological hazards under conditions of use is described. Five- pound batches of four commercial chemicals were purified by distillation. Diethyl vinylphosphonate was synthesized and polymerized to yield a polymer of 1145 molecular weight. Polyethylene grease 1800 molecular weight was chlorophosphonated, hydrolyzed, and neutralized with sodium hydroxide to yield a water-soluble salt containing 15.5 phosphorus. Static tests showed a 10 solution of this product in water to be somewhat corrosive to steel and copper and noncorrosive to aluminum and galvanized steel.
