|Publication Date:||1 December 2019|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This test method covers assessment of the wear aspects of the boundary lubrication properties of aviation turbine fuels on rubbing steel surfaces.
This test method incorporates two procedures, one using a semi-automated instrument and the second a fully automated instrument. Either of the two instruments may be used to carry out the test.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
