1.1 This test method covers the determination of the tendency of liquids in thin films and of vapors to form deposits on metal surfaces. The test method applies to both petroleum-based and synthetic lubricants, hydraulic fluids, heat-transfer fluids, and related materials.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. In cases where materials, products, or equipment are available in inch-pound units only, SI units are omitted.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
