We perform testing by specification MIL-PRF-3150, which includes testing whether an oil’s physical properties remain stable after long-term exposure to three different temperatures. MIL-PRF-3150 - Lubricating Oil Specification covers the requirements for a lubricating oil used as  a general purpose and ordinance lubricant. The storage stability test includes these storage periods:

3 months exposure at -40°C followed by 3 months at -18°C

3 months exposure at -18°C followed by 3 months at 25°C

3 months exposure at 25°C followed by 3 months at 54°C
