Sequence IX

2018) and continue to look at ways to review the VH to VG
equivalency data.

Sequence VIE and Sequence VIF
For Sequence VIE, a ballot of limits proposed by CLOG has
passed, and limits are now established for Sequence VIE in
ILSAC GF-5, API SN RC and API SN PLUS RC specifications. The limits are based on the results of a field oil survey
conducted last year. API has agreed to keep provisional licensing in place until the BOI/VGRA guidelines for Sequence
VIE are adopted.
The Sequence VIF test is also included for the SAE 0W-16
grade requirements in the API SN PLUS RC supplement. A
ballot to add Sequence VIF limits of 1.7 FEI2 and 3.8 FEI
Sum to API SN RC and for the new SN PLUS RC supplement closed without dissent.

COMPETITOR B

As mentioned earlier, Table G-5 of API 1509 has been updated
to include Sequence IX at a limit of five events maximum for API
SN PLUS and API SN PLUS RC. The BOI/VGRA task force
firmly believes that this test cannot be equated to any other tests
with historical data. The BOI/VGRA matrix for Sequence IX has
been given highest priority in order to establish guidelines for the
introduction of products to meet the new SN PLUS supplement.
With the final test approval approaching, the most pressing
need is to get the BOI/VGRA matrices underway. Managing
the oil blending and deployment to labs, lab readiness and data
collection is a large and critical project being undertaken by the
BOI/VGRA task force with assistance from the ASTM Test
Monitoring Center.
In the meantime, the launch date for API SN PLUS and
API SN PLUS RC is fast approaching, which means stakeholders have a lot of work to do in the next several months to
ensure products are available in time. In our view, consumer
education will continue to be essential for ensuring proper use
of the new lubricants.
