Rheology laboratory testing of polymers to determine the rheological (flow) properties of materials, gels and pastes, to optimise process and properties. Polymer Rheology testing is the study of how the stress in a material or force applied is related to deformation and flow of the material.
Understanding the rheological properties of polymers through laboratory testing will help to optimize products and process conditions, thereby saving prices and minimizing potential waste. Our polymer science experts perform rheological property testing on a wide range of polymers such as polyolefins, liquids, adhesives, gels and pastes employing a big selection of temperatures and deformation rates (both shear and extensional). rheology tests square measure performed whereas the polymer is within the melt part or whereas the polymer has been dissolved in a solvent for intrinsic viscosity and relative viscosity.
