HFC or water glycol fluids are the most widely used fire resistant hydraulic fluids because of their price-quality and their combination of fire resistant properties with reasonable lubrication performance.
Quaker markets HFC fluids (QUINTOLUBRIC® 702 Series) that are globally available and give outstanding performance in fire resistance and lubrication.

ISO 6743/4 specifies HFC fluids as:
- Aqueous monomer and/or polymer (polyglycol) solutions: Water content greater than 35% by weight.
- HFC-E: Fluids are a new type of fire resistant hydraulic fluids containing 20% water instead of 35% or more water by weight. This type of fluid combines the good fire resistant properties of HFC fluids with the lubrication performance normally associated with anhydrous fluids. HFC-E fluids are ideal for use in hydraulic systems designed for HFC fluids where end users are looking for a higher level of lubrication performance.
