Rheology Testing

Rheology is the study of flow and deformation of materials. Deformation and flow are referred to as strain or strain rate, respectively, and indicate the distance over which a body moves under the influence of an external force, or stress. 

We can measure the intrinsic viscosity, melt viscosity, and relative viscosity of materials which are all dynamically related to melt flow during processing. And our Viscometer determines the measure of viscosity for a lab specimen for a specific flow condition


Equipment used for Rheology Testing:
