Method Description:

Rheology is the study of flow and deformation. Controlled Stress Rheometers are flexible instruments that can measure a variety of viscous and visco-elastic properties. The rheometer also provides precise temperature control in the range of -10 to 150°C. The instrument is programmed on an individual sample basis to provide the rheological information the customer requires.



Additional Information:

A number of specialized viscometers/consistometers are also available for specific applications, check with Medallion with specific application questions. Include a copy of the test method to be used, if known. The submitter is encouraged to speak to the test specialist to help design an appropriate test protocol if there is no specific method.
