Fyrquel A60 is a phosphate ester-based fire resistant hydraulic fluid manufactured by the Solutia Corporation. It is commonly used in the aerospace, automotive and industrial sectors. It is also used as an industrial lubricant, as an additive in metalworking fluids and as a fire resistant hydraulic fluid in aircraft and other equipment. When rubber is exposed to Fyrquel A60 it may suffer from swelling, cracking, softening and degradation. In addition, the elastomer may become dry and brittle, lose its strength and tear easily. Long-term exposure to Fyrquel A60 can cause the rubber to become hard and brittle, resulting in permanent damage.
