- The cubical coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) pf Fluorinert Fluid, FC-86 was measured before and after degassing. The CTE for the FC-86 before degassing is: ..beta.. = 9.282 x 10/sup -6/T + 1.6115 x 10/sup -3/ with T = -30 to + 75/sup 0/C. The CTE for the FC-86 (degassed) is: ..beta.. = 6.133 x 10/sup -6/T + 1.7643 x 10/sup -3/ with T = -30 to + 75/sup 0/C. Measurements were also made of the pressures required to prevent cavitation in the degassed FC-86 and in FC-86 containing 2.4 volume percent of air. At 71.0/sup 0/C the cavitational pressure of degassed FC-86 is 1285 torr and at 73.8/sup 0/C the cavitational pressure of the FC-86 containing 2.4 volume percent of air is 1229 torr.
