m-VROC® , our small sample R&D viscometer, was used to obtain the data generated in this application note. The main reasons for using m-VROC® is due to the capabilities of a wide shear rate range and accuracy. Through the software, we were able to conduct shear rate and temperature rate sweeps of the Poloxamer 407 (Lutrol® F 127) solution. As stated above, the ability to conduct viscosity easurements can be used to optimize formulation coposition and achieve desired temperature dependent viscosity changes.
