The SAE International Industrial Lubricants Committee has developed a number of industrial, non-production lubricant performance specifications.The purpose of these voluntary SAE specifications is to:
a. Define minimum performance requirements for industrial lubricants.
b. Provide lubricant suppliers with performance targets for a minimum number of key industrial lubricants.
c. Improve the availability of these lubricants to member companies.
d. Provide a plant oriented, user friendly, classification system using common test standards and properties.
This document has been determined to contain stable technology which is not dynamic in nature. Document is overdue for a revision, but there are no significant changes expected; so the plan is to stabilize it.
