Discover new correlations by hyphenating rheology with spectroscopic/optical analysis

You can correlate the absolute flow and deformation characteristics of a material with processing or application behavior using rheological measurements. Yet the mechanical properties are directly related to microscopic or molecular structure. Combining rheometry with optical or spectroscopic techniques gives you a much better understanding of the material. Find out more by reviewing a compendium […]

App Note: Optimize processing conditions for improved plastic manufacturing

Understanding how polymer melts deform and flow is key to knowing how to effectively process and transform them into the end products we readily consume. In this application note see how different rheological tests can provide an understanding of the viscoelastic properties of polymeric materials to optimize formulations and blends as well as to adapt […]
