There is still much to discover about oil, not least the link between crude selection/oil composition and its impact on a variety of properties, including oxidation stability and lubricity.
Thanks to this ongoing research, we can provide greater reliability in supply. Another important task for R&D is to improve methodologies for oil characterisation, ultimately making the selection process easier.
Nynas specialisation on developing oils capacity for solvency, binding, to insulate and it's protective capcity requires extensive R&D. Major efforts are made in close collaboration with customers authorities and researchers.
Nynas invests heavily in research & development, a commitment that includes advanced laboratory facilities. It's the only way to stay relevant and competitive. Our efforts are not only focused on theoretical and practical research into oil, but also involve active participation on industry standards committees, including IEC and ASTM.
And like any other business, ours has its own powerful trends which need to be monitored and understood.
