    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covered the determination of the rates of volatilization of lubricants in a thermal-vacuum environment at pressures and temperatures necessary to obtain a measurable rate of evaporation, or evidence of decomposition.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D02 on Petroleum Products, Liquid Fuels, and Lubricants, this test method was withdrawn in December 2017. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the rates of volatilization of lubricants in a thermal-vacuum environment at pressures and temperatures necessary to obtain a measurable rate of evaporation, or evidence of decomposition.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    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.
