Exxon HyJet IV-A plus

Fire-Resistant Phosphate Ester Aviation Hydraulic Fluid

Exxon HyJet IV-Aplus is a fire-resistant phosphate ester hydraulic fluid designed for use in commercial aircraft. It is the best-performing Type IV fluid and approaches to a great extent many of the performance capabilities of Type V fluids, including high temperature stability, long fluid life, low density, and rust protection. It is superior to all other Type IV fluids in these respects. Exxon HyJet IV-A plus meets the specifications of all major aircraft manufacturers and SAE AS1241.

Features and Benefits

Exxon HyJet IV-A plus offers the following key features and benefits:

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Best in high temperature stability among Type IV fluids Longer fluid life.
Lesser need to replace fluid due to degradation.
Reduced hydraulic system maintenance costs
Lowest density Type IV fluid Reduced weight of the hydraulic fluid carried by aircraft.
Reduced aircraft fuel consumption, lower operating costs
Effective rust protection Reduced the risk of equipment damage in the event of major water contamination
Excellent low temperature flow (viscosity) properties Precise hydraulic system control and response even during extended range/polar flights.
Longer equipment life
Excellent deposit control Longer equipment life.
Reduced maintenance costs
Excellent protection against electro-chemical corrosion (erosion) Protection against servo valve and pump damage
Approved by all major aircraft manufacturers Use as fleet lubricant by airline operators
Fully compatible with all approved phosphate ester hydraulic fluids Flexibility in use by airline operators


Exxon HyJet IV-A plus fire-resistant aviation hydraulic fluid is used in commercial aircraft hydraulic systems where phosphate hydraulic fluids are recommended. It is compatible in all proportions with commercial Type IV and Type V phosphate ester aviation hydraulic fluids.

Exxon HyJet IV-A plus meets or exceeds the following industry and aircraft builder specifications. It is approved against all commercial aircraft manufacturer requirements and is included in their Qualified Products Lists.
