Lubricants, Industrial Oils and Related Products Type M (Metal Removal Fluids) - Specification
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.
ISO Standard 6743 - Lubricants, industrial oils and related products (class L) - Classification is the foundation for these documents.
Performance characteristics and test procedures are specified.
For information, equivalent ISO, DIN, CEN, BSI, ASTM, AFNOR, CETOP, and IP test methods are referenced.
