Description / Abstract:

This method indicates the tendency of a lubricating oil to deteriorate on oxidation under specified conditions. A measure of the deterioration is obtained by comparison of the viscosity and carbon residue before and after oxidation. The test is not suitable for additive-type oils (other than those containing ashless additives) or those which form solid products or lose more than 10% by evaporation during the test.
