Fyrquel® Fluids Description & Application
Fyrquel® fluids are phosphate ester type biodegradable synthetic non aqueous fire resistant fluids available in a range of viscosities.
Phosphate ester type fluids offer self extinguishing fire resistance that is needed for critical applications.

Note about other types of synthetic fluids that are marketed as fire resistant but burn like mineral oil once ignited
Other types of synthetic fluids are not self extinguishing. Only phosphate ester types are self extinguishing. Other types of synthetic fluids are marketed as offering comparable fire resistant but actually are easily shown only slightly more difficult to ignite compared to petroleum oil and when ignited readily propagate flame. These fluids do not self extinguish, should not be recommended for critical fire safety applications and are not even close substitutes for phosphate ester type fluids. The difference is easily shown by industry fire tests and by simple demonstration.
