Using our advanced research rheomoters and viscometers we are able to provide a comprehensive profile of coatings, paints and inks under a wide range of conditions and parameters to suit your development or manufacturing needs. Key attributes we record include: 

  • Uniformity of thickness in application across a product’s development, manufacture and usage
  • Film formation & control of flow once the product is applied
  • Spreadability & sprayability for ease of coating under usage conditions
  • Sag resistance, levelling & pigment settling stability for ensuring a desired finish is achieved every time
  • Ease of brushing with adequate film build
  • Spatter resistance, an important measurement for products with colouring or industrial coating properties
  • Dripping and other forms of post-application deformation
  • Coating processes such as rolling, knife, dip, spray and slot-die to ensure the product behaves as the user expects when applied

Here are some of the clients we have provided rheology and viscosity assistance in the fields of coatings, paints and inks:

Sun Chemical, Fujifilm, Kodak, HP, Whitford, Akzo Nobel
