    Withdrawn Rationale:

    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.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, this test method was withdrawn in August 2010 due to lack of interest and support for its continued use.

    1. Scope

    1.1 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.

    1.2 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 given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
