    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4289 - 19

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

    Keywords

    compatibility; density; elastomer; fluid; grease; immersion; lubricant; lubricating grease; relative; rubber; seal(s);;

    Rationale

    It was brought up that the material specification for the polychloroprene elastomer was revised by SAE due to a change in the reference oil used to qualify it. Since there is no change in the elastomer itself, it was agreed to ballot the change from AMS 3217/3B to AMS 3217/3C. Additionally, it was pointed out that the reference in Note 4 listing Rubber-Tech as the sole supplier of the NBR material is no longer correct as ARDL is now supplying this material as well.
