ASTM E2275 – Metalworking Fluid Test

ASTM E2275 is a standard practice for evaluating water-miscible metalworking fluid bioresistance and antimicrobial preservative performance. Metal Working Fluids (MWF) are regularly used in challenging environments and are often exposed to significant microbial populations. Untreated or untested, MWF’s ability to function properly can be compromised by microbial contamination.  ASTM E2275 is also used to determine the overall […]


Personal Care

Personal care and cosmetic products have a number of microbial challenges that in combination often exceed that of industrial materials and other consumer goods. Not only does the personal care or cosmetic product need to perform a function (wash, apply, stick, etc.) it also needs to provide value such as lasting after use, leave a […]



Fuels are often used in environments where microbes can thrive.  With higher levels of humidity, available food sources and, for bacteria, a lack of direct light, these environments can make for prime growing conditions. Antimicrobial additives used in fuel can run into challenges not seen in other environments.  These challenges can have an effect on […]
