This standard test for dynamic viscosity measurements is now faster and more accurate by use of new high precision microprocessor controls. As non-Newtonian fluids exhibit different viscosities relative to the shear rate applied, the cone and plate viscometer tightly controls it to 10,000S-1 (B.S. requirements) or to 12,000S-1 (ASTM). These are generally accepted to be representative of paint application via a roller or brush and so reflect ‘real world’ application. As most viscosity measurements are highly temperature sensitive the samples are placed on a temperature controlled plate which can be set from 5 to 65°C.
