Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Other lubricant base oil viscosity is considered to be > 2 mm2/s at 40°C. A viscosity range of 1.99 to 847 mm2/s at 40°C was reported by CONCAWE (2010a). The viscosity was determined using the EN ISO 3104/ ASTM D 445 test method.

Other lubricant base oil viscosities may also be characterised by measured values for several lubricant base oil samples, which range from 4.48 to 1300 mm²/s at 40°C, (viscosity values for the same samples at 100°C were 3.08 to 50 mm²/s), according to Method ASTM D 445 (CONCAWE, 1984; 1997). These studies received Klimisch scores of 2 and are classified as reliable with restrictions.
