1. LA and LB: chassis lubricants (suitability up to mild and severe duty respectively)

2. GA, GB and GC: wheel-bearings (suitability up to mild, moderate and severe duty respectively)

A given performance category may include greases of different consistencies. The measure of the consistency of grease is commonly expressed by its NLGI consistency number. The main elements of standard ATSM D4950 and NLGI's consistency classification are reproduced and described in standard SAE J310  “automotive lubricating greases” published by SAE International.
