ASTM WK42651

    Work Item: ASTM WK42651 - Revision of D4289 - 03(2008) Standard Test Method for Elastomer Compatibility of Lubricating Greases and Fluids

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4289 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.G0.01 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    The NBR elastomer material specified in the standard is no longer being made by the original supplier (ARDL). A replacement material is being made available by Rubber-Tech. Limited testing of different GC-LB greases is now complete and this committee understands that SAE has approved it for use with a designation of SAE AMS 3217/2C. The limited testing completed shows no bias between the old material and the new material but due to lack of the old material, more in depth evaluation will not be possible.
