Satisfied Clients From Across The Globe

  • "We are very impressed with the rheological services offered by the Centre for Industrial Rheology. They developed some effective and easy-to-use methods for our TA rheometer for some difficult-to-measure samples. The method development was then backed up with training that was concise, coherent and refreshingly uncomplicated."


  • "The Centre for Industrial Rheology’s value lies in their ability to offer sound technical advice on the development of practical and appropriate test methods to suit specific needs. Their work for our group resulted in a test method that has been extensively employed for process development and scale-up prior to transferal to our production sites."

    Procter and Gamble

We were very impressed with their in-depth and practical knowledge of testing procedures and equipment. They responded quickly and specified the required viscometer for both us and our customer, developed a reliable test method and provided training and support for all users."

    TA Instruments

  • "In regards to the Centre for Industrial Rheology, I can say without a doubt that the training my company received from them was very valuable. They showed us how to look at data collected in a different way to make sure the data was good, but also to get the most out of the data that was collected by our Brookfield viscometers. We put into use what they taught us as soon as the very next day, and I feel more confident in the way we are conducting our tests as a result. I recommend having The Centre for Industrial Rheology come in to anyone who is looking to improve their knowledge of rheology and data interpretation."
