    Revision of D5800 - 20 Standard Test Method for Evaporation Loss of Lubricating Oils by the Noack Method

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D5800 - 21

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.06 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK75863


    Keywords

    evaporation loss of lubricants; Noack volatility; volatility of lubricants;;

    Rationale

    The wording for Section 7.2 has been interpreted by some that NCO-12 is required to be used as the reference fluid for D5800, which is not aligned with industry practice or consensus. The proposed wording would clarify that NCO-12 is an option for a reference fluid, but is not required.
