Rotational rheometry is a powerful technique for the measurement of complex shear rheology across all material types – sensitive enough to measure the viscosity of dilute polymer solutions, and yet robust enough to measure the viscoelasticity of high modulus polymers or composites. Rotational rheometry is ideal for discerning structural and compositional changes of materials, which can be critical controlling factors in flow and deformation properties, and ultimately product stability and performance.
The basics of the rotational rheometry technique are as follows:
Rotational rheometry also enables other rheological properties to be evaluated, including yield stress, thixotropy, creep and recovery and stress relaxation.
