HFD-U 46 Hydraulic Oil is an advanced, synthetic, anhydrous, less flammable hydraulic fluid based on organic esters and proven additives.
These ISO Class HFDU fluids are specially designed to provide good performance in conventional hydraulic systems and have better fire resistance than mineral oils. HFD-U 46 Hydraulic Oil is biodegradable with a low ecotoxicity and particularly suited for use in environmentally sensitive areas. Typical applications for HFD-U 46 Hydraulic Oil are to be found in the tunnel boring, metal, mining and glass industries. HFD-U 46 Hydraulic Oil can replace mineral oils in hydraulic installations to provide good lubrication and a higher degree of fire resistance.

Product Code: 00541
  • Lower flammability than mineral oils
  • Readily biodegradable – >60% after 28 days when tested in OECD 301 B (CO2 evolution test)
