Title: Comparing Viscosity Results
Presenters: Emil Cocirla, Service Manager and Senior Application Specialist

Summary: Often viscosity results are shared between departments within the same company, different companies, or material suppliers and end users, and at times the same material appear to have a different viscosity when compared to a previous measurement although no changes in the material are suspected. Our presentation will refer to measuring the dynamic viscosity using a rotational viscometer/rheometer and what are the main factors that could influence the measurement result. We will cover the Newtonian and non-Newtonian behaviours, how to identify them, what parameters are important when measuring viscosity, and how to effectively compare measurements taken by various parties, even if different equipment is used.
