Frog Saliva Viscosity

Posted by Grace

Feb 6, 2017 5:10:01 PM

 

According to a recent discovery, a frog is able to change the viscosity of its saliva in order to catch its prey. When extending its tongue out at the prey, the viscosity of the frog's saliva decreases. Once the prey is on the frog's tongue being drawn closer to the frog, the frog's saliva thickens up far more viscous than honey.Read our application notes on kinetic studies!

Viscosity of  Conductive Inks, Coatings, Paints, & Pastes

Posted by David Nieto

Mar 1, 2016 11:49:06 AM

Whether you work with printed electronics, touch displays, or any of the number of applications working with conductive inks, coatings, paints and pastes, viscosity is one of the key parameters in the development of your process. Over the last few months, RheoSense has released a number of applications related to conductive inks. Our instruments allow for accurate rheological charaterization of these samples between 4°C and 105°C. Check them out!

Viscosity of conductive inks with m-VROC® and microVISC™:


Viscosity of conductive inks, paints and coatings is key to establish manufacturing processes for printed electronics and display systems. The complexity of printing and coating technologies has motivated a rapid growth of the conductive inks industry. To meet the market demands, efficient, highly accurate and fast characterization methods are required.
 
Conventional viscometers are often unable to fully characterize complex fluids (i.e. they are not able to measure viscosity as a function of shear rate or extensional properties). On the other hand, rheometers are limited to relatively low (<10,000 1/s) deformation rates. Our microfluidic-based VROC® (Viscometer/Rheometer On a Chip) technology overcomes these limitations.
 
RheoSense viscometers are able to fully characterize the flow curves (viscosity vs shear rate) of complex fluids for shear rates ranging from 0.5 to 1,400,000 1/s. Additionally, we offer measurements of extensional viscosity and temperature control from 4°C to 105°C. Accurate measurements of shear and extensional viscosity at the deformation rates and temperatures relevant for the fabrication processes are essential to understand the subtleties of the different printing and coating technologies.

VROC® powered instruments, provide a solution to the challenges of conventional technologies. The high accuracy and repeatability over a wide range of deformation rates make our systems Simply Precise™ at a fraction of the sample volume and testing time!

Spiders Fight Humidity with Viscosity

Posted by David Nieto

Nov 5, 2015 12:49:33 PM

Looks like every spider will be shopping this holiday season for a viscometer to fine tune the viscosity of the glue droplets that cover spider webs and strands. Luckily RheoSense made the microVISC™, a portable and battery powered viscometer/rheometer. As Spidey (the little spider living in one of the corners of my backyard) puts it: “I needed a fast, portable and Simply Precise™ instrument. Rheosense had the perfect solution for me. Now my spider webs are stickier than ever!”
