Quality control is a system or set of procedures designed to maintain standards, or ensure manufactured products adhere to the defined quality criteria or standards. These procedures not only ensure that product quality is maintained, but also improved. It is also these quality control measures that ensure deficient or unsafe products do not end up in the hands of your customers.
Quality control measurements help ensure consistency between different formulation lots and verify material purity. You must understand the composition of the materials you work with to properly formulate your solutions. Testing at various production, and manufacturing, stages helps to identify any problems and allows remedial steps to be taken to prevent issues moving forward. This control not only ensures product quality, but also production efficiency!
Viscosity is an ideal screening measurement when testing consistency of raw materials and formulation lots, and determining the behavior of materials in the real world. These measurements can be used to predict how products will behave once distributed to consumers, helping to ensure the product quality and user experience are excellent.
Viscosity is a crucial quality control measurement across numerous industries, including:
Batteries & electrolytes
Food & beverage
Inks, paints & coatings
Oils & lubricants
