Low Speed Continuous Slip SAE No. 2 µPVT Procedure
This SAE document is intended as the definition of a standard test, which may be subject to frequent change to keep pace with experience and technical advances. This should be kept in mind when considering its use. The SAE No. 2 friction test is used to evaluate the friction characteristics of automatic transmission plate clutches with automotive transmission fluid combinations. The specific purpose of this document is to define a µPVT test for the evaluation of the variation of wet friction system low speed slip characteristics as a function of speed, temperature, and pressure. This procedure is intended as a suggested method for both suppliers and end users. The only variables selected by the supplier or user of the friction system are: • Friction material • Fluid • Reaction plates • Oil flow (optional) These four variables must be clearly identified when reporting the results of this test.
