Viscosity Testing

Applied Technical Services’ viscosity testing services help clients evaluate the structural properties of polymers. 

What is Viscosity Testing, and Why is it Important?

Viscosity refers to a material’s resistance to motion and deformation by tensile stress or shear. For example, substances with high viscosity, such as honey, are thick and more difficult to pour than substances with lower viscosity, such as water or milk. In polymers, viscosity refers to a material’s ability to be molded which is especially important to the production process of products and materials. 

Viscosity testing services allow manufacturers to analyze a polymer’s properties, ensuring that the material can perform to the manufacturer’s expectations. Material selection is an important process that affects a product’s appearance, quality, and performance in particular conditions and environments.

Applied Technical Services' Viscosity Testing
