Footnotes:        
* Based on material published in Machine Design.
 
1. Copper and magnesium are not recommended for use in a hydraulic system. Long term corrosion rates are excessive.
2. Lead and zinc are not recommended for use in a hydraulic system. Their oxidation products can form soaps and cause emulsions.
3. Titanium should not be used at temperatures above 325°F/163°C. Hydrogen embrittlement may occur.
4. Includes alkyd-phenolic, alkyd-silicone and alkyd-urethane finishes.
