This SAE Standard describes the performance and part requirements for elastomeric seals used in highway vehicle disc brake calipers. Seals covered by this specification may be the solid section type (square, rectangular, O-ring, etc.) mounted stationary in the cylinder bore or on the movable piston. The specification contains the following major sections:
Technology is considered stable. Committee strategy is to update the duty cycles of component durability tests with the outcome of the J2995 project. Test fixturing and methodology is not expected to change.
