Rheology

What flows so tantalizingly can also be characterized by such demure variables as viscosity and yield point. This is done with the help of instruments such as shear, extension, rotation or oscillation rheometers, named according to the method employed or the intended purpose. Many of the more recent instruments are modular in construction, for example allowing the measurement system or the temperature control unit to be exchanged.

  • New method measures 3D polymer processing precisely

    Recipes for three-dimensional (3D) printing, or additive manufacturing, of parts have required as much guesswork as science. Until now.  Resins and other materials that react under light to form polymers, or long chains of molecules, are attractive for 3D printing of parts ranging from architectural more
