High Viscosity Conductive Inks

A complete rheological study on the shear and extensional viscosity of thick conductive inks

Viscosity is a key parameter affecting quality and performance of printed electronics and display systems. In this application note, we present a complete rheological study (shear viscosity, temperature dependence and extensional viscosity) of a carbon-water based high viscosity ink or paint. 


VROC® technology offers a number of advantages over conventional viscometers and rheometers including: 

  • Wide Dynamic Range:
    • Shear Viscosity: 0.2 - 200,000 [mPa-s]
    • Shear Rate: 0.5 - 1,400,000 [1/s]
    • Extensional Viscosity: 0.04 - 100 [Pa-s]
    • Extensional Rate: 1 - 10,000 [1/s]
  • Temperature Control: 4 - 125ºC
  • Superior Accuracy (2% of Reading) and Repeatability (0.5% of Reading)
  • Lowest Sample Volume Required
  • No Air-Liquid Interface (No Evaporation or Contamination)
