This European Standard specifies the requirements of lubricants intended for lubrication of the wheelrail interface between the wheel flange and the rail gauge corner (active interface) applied either directly or indirectly to the wheel flange or to the rail to achieve an acceptable level of friction and wear.
It covers the approval procedure, the method of testing and routine control/monitoring of the lubricant.
