Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 May 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products): 75.100
scope:

This test method covers the determination of the dropping point of lubricating grease.

This test method is not recommended for use at bath temperatures above 288 °C. For higher temperatures Test Method D2265 should be used.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

WARNING-The dropping point does not have any bearing on the performance of the grease.

WARNING-This test method uses mercury-filled thermometers. Mercury has been designated by many regulatory agencies as a hazardous substance that can cause serious medical issues. Mercury, or its vapor, has been demonstrated to be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials. Use Caution when handling mercury and mercury-containing products. See the applicable product Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for additional information. The potential exists that selling mercury or mercury-containing products, or both, is prohibited by local or national law. Users must determine legality of sales in their location. The responsible subcommittee, D02.G.3, continues to explore alternatives to eventually replace the mercury thermometers.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see 6.4 and 8.1.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
