ASTM D4049 - Determining the Resistance of Lubricating Grease to Water Spray
We perform grease testing by ASTM D4049 to measure the ability of lubricating grease to adhere to metal when subjected to a water spray. The results from this test suggest correlation in operations involving direct water spray such as steel mill roll neck bearing service. ASTM D4049 is used for quality control and purchase specifications.
We also perform water content, water contamination, and water resistance testing by ASTM D1264, ASTM D1401, ASTM D1533, ASTM D1744, ASTM D1796, ASTM D2709, ASTM D4006, ASTM D4007, ASTM D4928, ASTM D95, ASTM E203, FTM 3463, IP 386, ISO 10337, ISO 3733, and IP 74. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types. Click on the test method number to learn more about each test.
