    Rationale

    D128 Standard Test Methods for Analysis of Lubricating Grease was reapproved in June 2019 but with two comments. The comments were both with regard to clarification that the use of the method was intended for new greases and not in-service greases. The Standard will be discussed with a small group to propose changes to current subsections as well.
