    Oil in water emulsions have excellent cooling and fire resistance properties and are used as lubricants in cold roiling mills. The elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) properties of O/W emulsions for cold rolling have not been confirmed clearly. For that reason, high pressure viscosity and film thickness were measured. From the results, the following facts were found. That EHL film could be formed and its thickness could be calculated using the high-pressure viscosity of O/W emulsions.
