The direct partial fluorination of synthetic fluids, i.e., a synthetic hydrocarbon and an alkylated silicone was attempted in order to substantially improve their fire-resistance properties for use as aircraft hydraulic fluids. A maximum of 5 wt. percent fluorine could be incorporated into the synthetic hydrocarbon fluid with no observed improvement in fire-resistance properties. The incorporation of fluorine into an alkylated silicone fluid was not achievable. Author
