Abstract : The fluid developed by this group was evaluated and good high temperature properties and excellent sheer stability have been established. The material was pourable at -70 F., but was solid when st red undisturbed at -40 F. The work continues with two main approaches: one, using a reaction of tetra alkyl titanate with basic zinc octoate with titanium tetrachloride as catalyst; the other, reacting the two components in the presence of water, to more easily free the isopropyl groups of a tetra isopropyl titanate. Both products have a flame point around 600 F. The reaction between tetra alkyl titanates with organics containing phosphoric groups is being studied in an effort to introduce phosphoric groups in the titanates; it is hoped that self flame extinguishing properties may be obtained beyond the present flame point. A reaction product between tetra isopropyl titanate and a tri octyl phosphate is studied as a viscosity reducing additive to the fluid complexes. (Author)
