Viscosity of Inks



 
Viscosity of Ink Chemistries

"At Arizona State University, our research focuses on developing ink chemistries for additive manufacturing from the nanometer to the centimeter scales.  To achieve this goal, we must precisely control the rheology properties of our inks.  The RheoSense microVISC™ has been instrumental in our lab to measure and monitor the viscosity of our research inks throughout the day.  The tool is extremely simple to use and its small sample volume saves money for some of the more expensive inks.  Additionally, the use of affordable, disposable syringes saves us considerable time compared to cleaning a traditional rheometer ten times a day.  

Overall, we would recommend this tool to other groups looking for an easy-to-use rheometer for daily lab use. "
