|Publication Date:||15 October 1994|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
This test method covers the determination of the endurance (wear) life and load carrying capacity of thin film fluid lubricants that are intended to operate after a single application and after excess material has drained from the contact area of sliding metal to metal surfaces, and which operates in what functionally is a drain and dry mode with no additional lubricant being applied.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard except where equipment is supplied using inch-pound units which would then be regarded as the standard. The values in parenthesis are given for information only.
