1.1 This specification covers lubricating greases suitable for the periodic relubrication of chassis systems and wheel bearings of passenger cars, trucks, and other vehicles.
1.2 This specification defines the requirements used to describe the properties and performance characteristics of chassis greases and wheel bearing greases for service-fill applications.
1.3 The test requirements (acceptance limits) given in this specification are, as the case may be, minimum or maximum acceptable values for valid duplicate test results. Apply no additional corrections for test precision, such as described in Practice , inasmuch as the precision of the test methods was taken into account in the determination of the requirements.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
1.4.1 Exceptions—Test Method reports test results in kgf units, and Test Method reports rubber hardness in Durometer Shore A units.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
SAE StandardsAMS 3217/2C Test Slabs, Acrylonitrile Butadiene (NBR-L)-Low Acrylonitrile, 65-75 With respect to elastomer AMS 3217/2B, the elastomer specification has been superseded by AMS 3217/2C. Per SAE, the 2A and 2B elastomers were identical, however the synthetic lubricant immersion fluid used to reference the elastomer has been exchanged from ARM-200 to AMS 3021. Reference fluid AMS 3021 better represents current market aviation fluids. Elastomers 2B and 2C were compared using NLGI GC-LB reference greases batch 1 and 2 and were found to give similar results.
