Hello Every One,


I need assistance regarding following query 


We are producing natural grade -1 lube base oil and one our client consistently asking about the shelf/storage life of lube base oil particularly 150NHVI, 400NHVI and 500NHVI.


National refinery limited is the only producing lube base oil in Pakistan since 1966 but never felt it necessary to mention our products shelf/storage life.


Is there any standard criteria to mention or measure storage life. Any ASTM method or research based formulation to obtain Shelf/Storage life.
