The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 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.
The SAE TC2 Committee reviewed and revised MS1003/2 when it reviewed and revised MS1003. MS1003/2 was incorporated into the revised MS1003, so MS1003/2 can now be deleted.
