One of the most commonly asked questions from our customers is the topic of shear rates and what to expect when dealing with various applications. Now most of you have a general idea on what shear rate means, but we want to take it one step further and illustrate several key components when dealing with shear rates.

First things first: Shear rate is a key parameter when measuring viscosity. Your sample could be Newtonian or non-Newtonian.

Working with shear rates enable you to explore various factors on how your sample behaves including the most important factor, if your sample is Newtonian or non-Newtonian (check out our informational page on the differences). With this knowledge, determining the shear rates at which your sample changes viscosity can determine the fate of your product performance whether it is injected into a patient or ink flowing out of a inkjet nozzle.

So learn how you can properly estimate shear rate and confidently select the desired parameters in your sample measurement. To learn more, join us for the upcoming webinar so that you can design your experiments to get the most out of your viscosity measurements. 

Topics covered will include:

  • What is shear rate and why is it so important?
  • Simple ways to estimate shear rates for various applications.
  • Tips on selecting the best VROC® chip and flow rate for your measurements.
