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.

Many products (or product precursors) in the paint, personal care, cleaning, coatings and food areas, etc., contain large amounts of finely divided solid particulate material dispersed in a liquid matrix. The amount, shape, size distribution and inte...
The market for batteries is rapidly growing, and the increased demand for portable electronic devices, including mobile phones and laptops requires greater advances in battery technology in order to provide a light weight, long lasting and stable pow...
Biopolymers are widely used in the pharmaceutical and food industries. Rheological testing of biopolymers used in these industries is necessary to provide information about their behaviour in physiological environments as their functionality within t...
There is often a necessity to measure, or at least estimate, true viscosity values using non-standard measuring systems on a rotational rheometer. This may be to replicate a mixing or manufacturing process on a lab scale, to keep a sample dispersed a...
