Polikon TEST is a frost-resistant, fire-resistant hydraulic fluid of HFC type and a cooling medium. It is used in the engineering and mining industry, especially as a lubricant in cylinders. Ideal for filling hydraulic power units.
The product is intended for testing, transport and maintenance of hydraulic equipment. It is a mixture of surfactants, glycols, functional additives, water and dyes.
The commercial product contains about 50% of the active substance and is in the form of a green fluorescent liquid. The characteristic colour helps to easily locate leaks in the machines. The product is defined as a fire resistant hydraulic fluid. It provides excellent lubricating properties and a low freezing point.
Due to the presence of functional additives such as corrosion inhibitors, the product exhibits anti-corrosion properties for: steel, aluminium alloys, copper and brass. Polikon Test is mild for seals and, due to the presence of an anti-foam agent, has a moderate tendency to foaming.
Due to its low-temperature characteristics, the product can also be used as a cooling medium in refrigeration systems.
Polikon TEST meets the restrictive requirements for fire resistant hydraulic fluids of the Central Mining Institute of Poland.
