Harnessing the True Power of Rheology

The penetration of new analytical methods follows a well-defined path; first come the early adopters, who discover what new techniques can do, evaluate their value and shape their evolution, and then, based on a positive outcome, the new technologies transition to the mainstream. Formulators can use information collected from a wide range of techniques, meaning it can be easy to lose sight of what has become possible.

Recent developments in rotational rheometer design illustrate how technology can transform the accessibility, and as a result, the value of the technique, over just a few years. This article discusses what modern rotational rheometers can do, distinguishing this with the data provided by typical rotational viscometers.

For formulation, viscometry has been a mainstream technology for some time, but techniques leading the way have long since transitioned to the broader capabilities of rheometry. Therefore, the options associated with changing your ageing viscometer may be a long way from like-for-like. This article provides information to support an up-to-date validation of the value of upgrading.
