High Performance Water-glycol Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid

PETRONAS Hydraulic HFC is a high performance, fire resistant, anti-wear hydraulic fluids specially developed for industrial hydraulic equipment operating under normal to moderate conditions, recommended whenever a major fire hazard exists associated with industrial hydraulic systems.

Formulated with balanced water-glycol base enhanced with advanced anti-wear, anti-oxidant, anti- rust and anti-foam additives, PETRONAS Hydraulic HFC fluid provides very good anti-wear protection, smooth operation of the hydraulic systems and contribute to mitigate the risks of violent explosions or fire in the immediate vicinity of flames or hot metal surfaces.


PETRONAS Hydraulic HFC is recommended for use in:

  • various industrial hydraulic systems operating under high temperatures whenever a major fire hazard exists such as die casting machines, hydraulic forging presses and hammers, machines and drive systems in the mining industry and robot welding machines

Note: PETRONAS Hydraulic HFC can only be mixed with water-glycol based hydraulic fluids. Historically, water-glycol fluids have exhibited excellent compatibility and service life with standard hydraulic seals and hose elastomers. PETRONAS Hydraulic HFC affords similar elastomer compatibility with commonly used materials, such as Viton, high-nitrile Buna N, EPDM, butyl, silicone, and halogenated elastomers (e.g., Aflas, Kalrez, etc.). Urethanes and Buna S (SBR) elastomers are not compatible with PETRONAS Hydraulic HFC.


Excellent Fire resistance / High temperature applications

Reduces risk of fire in high temperature and close to open flame applications, which can ensure safer working environment

Very good anti-wear protection

Protects equipment components from excessive wear

Very good thermal and oxidation stability

Maintains performance levels under wide temperatures and pressure

Very good rust & corrosion protection

Inhibits the corrosion process that occurs in presence of water, improving equipment life
