ASTM D1264 - Water Washout Characteristics of Lubricating Greases


We perform lubricating grease quality testing by ASTM D1264 to evaluate a grease’s resistance to water at high temperatures. The grease sample is packed into a ball bearing, which is then rotated under flowing water. The amount of grease washed out during the test is one measure of the resistance of the grease to water washout. 

We also perform water content, water contamination, and water resistance testing by ASTM D1401ASTM D1533ASTM D1744ASTM D1796ASTM D2709ASTM D4006ASTM D4007ASTM D4049ASTM D4928ASTM D95ASTM E203FTM 3463IP 386ISO 10337ISO 3733, and IP 74. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types.
