Among the speakers was Professor Thomas Norrby from Nynas. He presented no fewer than three different technical papers. One of these dealt with the oxidation stability of base oil blends, while the others highlighted two aspects of metalworking fluids: neat oil stability, and the stability of cutting fluid emulsions based on naphthenic base oils.

Behind the results that Professor Norrby presented in Atlanta were many years of work by employees in Nynas’ R&D Department.
