A corrosion-inhibited, low-pour-point, water-base fluid formulation, LF-4713, containing a soluble, fire-resistant, phosphonated polyethylene thickener, was evaluated. The fluid appears to have good fire resistance and meets many of the target requirements for a satisfactory hydraulic fluid. Its thermal instability and its tendency to form stable foams and to allow corrosion of ferrous metals in vapor spaces require correction.
