Unless you’re doing it all the time like us, setting up rheometer or viscometer standard operating procedures (SOPs) and new test methods can be costly and frustrating and can be a very time-consuming process. Getting good quality results that are free from instrument and methodology-related factors is one thing but do they really tell you what you need to know? This is where our Rheology Consultancy service can help.

If you have new or revised products in need of validated methods, or maybe if you have lost faith in your current tests or methodologies, then we can help you.

Meanwhile you might be interested to understand really how easy it is for you to get the answers and to get the long term solutions that you need. This is how we approach any project – with the prime concern being to make it easy and simple for you. We do the tough bits… that’s what we’re good at.

We provide a wide range of rheology testing services ranging from rapid “rheology snapshots” for obtaining a quick overview of key characteristics to comprehensive and revealing profiles focusing on specific aspects of a material’s behaviour.

Rheology, the study of the flow and deformation of matter, offers a great set of tools for anybody looking to characterise the flow, texture, appearance and handling characteristics of their products. The combination of structural characteristics, flow behaviour and viscoelasticity all combine to contribute to material attributes such as:

  • Skin feel, mouth feel and sensory attributes
  • Pumping, mixing and filling behaviours
  • Suspension and emulsion stability
  • Application and coating properties
  • Lubrication and adhesion
  • Atomization and spraying

A wide variety of rheology analysis methods exist. Some of the more commonly used measurements and metrics that we can deliver include:

  • Viscosity as a function of shear stress
  • Viscosity as a function of shear rate
  • Viscosity as a function of temperature
  • Zero-shear viscosity measurements
  • Yield stress and yield strain measurements
  • Thixotropic breakdown rate
  • Thixotropic recovery rates
  • Elasticity under shear measurements
  • Structure rigidity, complex, storage and loss modulus
  • Phase angle and tan delta
  • Oscillatory stress and strain sweeps
  • Oscillatory frequency sweeps
  • Oscillatory temperature sweeps and cycles
  • Creep and recovery

Rheology testing is rapidly gaining ground as a critical technique for many product development, process design and quality control needs.

The Centre for Industrial Rheology provides a range of outsourced viscosity testing services with a quick turnaround, ranging from sophisticated cone/plate measurements to simple Brookfield viscosity tests. An ideal solution if you:

  • Need rapid, accurate and relevant viscosity analysis of your sample.
  • Need verification of material supplied to you or you need to provide a verification of your material to your customers.
  • Need to investigate unexpected changes on batches of material.
  • Are looking to purchase viscometers or rheometers and need to establish the correct equipment, accessories and test methods.

Our test laboratory houses a myriad of rheometers, viscometers, spindles, plates and other accessories that can provide you with a viscosity analysis on most samples, including:

  • Suspensions
  • Emulsions
  • Gels
  • Pastes
  • Slurries and sludges

All viscosity testing services come with a comprehensive report with detailed observations, backed up with friendly, accessible support and Q&A/follow ups. Our purpose is to enable you to identify the best testing approach for your products and to make full use of the results we provide.

Rheology and viscosity is gaining increasing importance for industries working with adhesives, sealants, building materials and resins. In all these industries the rheology of a product before, during and after an application dictates a multitude of factors like viscosity, shear rate needed, rigidity and thixotropic recovery for example.

The research rheometers and viscometers at our disposal, along with years’ of professional rheology experience, mean we can analyse and advise on a vast range sealants, adhesives, primers, gelling agents and other such building materials’ attributes such as:

  • High & low temperature applications for predicting product behaviour throughout the development and manufacturing process.
  • Ductility, and how this will affect the products’ properties.
  • Wash off/time resistance as an indicator of product reaction to application.
  • Viscoelasticity of the product through a range of conditions and parameters, useful instances such as when the product is applied.
  • Elasticity, rigidity, thickness and stickiness so as to understand how the product will react to its surroundings and applied pressures.
  • Flow ability and its relevant thixotropic characteristics.
  • Grab, slump, sag, creep, slip and many other low shear qualities when the product is at rest.
  • Tack, peel & creep behaviour to ensure the product behaves as you require.

Here are some of the clients we have provided rheology and viscosity assistance in the field of adhesives, sealants & building materials:

Alfa Laval, Minelco, Sandvik, Sibelco, Dynea

The lubricating abilities, or tribology, of topical products, cosmetics and foods is increasingly being studied by formulators looking to deliver outstanding sensory experiences for the consumers of their products. We have a range of tribological testing capabilities to provide you with insights into your products and those of your competitors.

Tribology is the study of the friction, lubrication and wear of interacting surfaces. Biotribology, or soft tribology, is the specific study of compliant, biological surfaces such as the eyelid and cornea, tongue and palate, lips, mucous membranes or skin surfaces. The film forming and lubricating ability of layers of liquids and viscoelastic materials applied to these surfaces provides a fascinating and powerful data set for formulators of:

  • Eye drops for dry eye conditions
  • Generic pharmaceutical ointments, creams and lotions
  • Fat-reduced foods
  • Colour cosmetics, such as lipsticks, eyeshadow and eye-liner
  • Moisturisers, lip balms and sun-care products
  • Personal and intimate lubricants

Unlike rheology testing, where the sample under test is held in a defined gap between surfaces moving relative to each other, tribology testing entails bringing those surfaces into contact under a defined pressure and sliding one against the other, measuring the frictional drag over a range of sliding speeds. The surfaces and/or any applied lubricating liquid form the test sample.
