    Revision of G133 - 05(2010) Standard Test Method for Linearly Reciprocating Ball-on-Flat Sliding Wear

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: G133 - 05(2016)

    Developed by Subcommittee: G02.40 | Committee G02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Revision to assess feasibility of adding a Procedure C to the standard for thin film coatings Standard is due for re-approval. Options: (a) re-approve as-is, (b) hold up re-approval for a new procedure for thin films to be developed, (c) re-approve as is, but continue work on a new procedure C, (d) develop a new standard using the same geometry, but with a scope aimed at coatings and thin films.
