The extent to which a liquid resists a tendency to flow is defined as viscosity. In the coatings industry, this behaviour is one of the key parameters.
Elcometer manufactures and supplies a wide range of viscosity gauges from flow cups and dip cups to rotational viscometers.
Rotational viscometers are used to determine the viscosity of liquids which do not depend solely on temperature and pressure. The behaviour of non-Newtonian liquids can be determined using a range of rotational viscometers in particular the Cone and Plate viscometers.
