Features and Specifications
Skydrol LD-4 was also introduced in 1978, and is today the largest selling aviation phosphate ester fluid in the world. At the time of its introduction it was a breakthrough product, solving problems of valve erosion and thermal stability common in earlier fluids. Its excellent thermal stability under real world conditions has given it a reputation as the gold standard among Type IV fluids. In recent years it has received an additional qualification of 5000 psi approval under Boeing BMS 3-11 (Type V, Grade B and Grade C). Skydrol LD-4 features low density, excellent thermal stability, valve erosion prevention, and deposit control.
