for determining the acceptability of gear oils for applications
that specify a lubricant meeting the performance requirements of
API Category GL-5 service. Lubricants that meet these performance
requirements are typically intended for use in automotive axles,
particularly those containing hypoid gears, operating under various
combinations of high-speed/ shock-load and low-speed/high-torqu
