Lord Engineerings description of the fluid content:
MR fluid consists of 20-40 percent by volume of relatively pure, 3-10 micron diameter iron particles, suspended in a carrier liquid such as mineral oil, synthetic oil, water or glycol.

The fluid becomes solid in miliseconds when introduced to a magnetic field.
