The Importance of Viscosity
In a liquid, molecules have the ability to slide around each other – this is called flow. The resistance to flow is a fluid’s viscosity, often thought of as “denseness” or “thickness”, it can be thought of as a measure of fluid thickness. So for example, honey would have a higher viscosity than water; it is denser and so it will have a greater resistance to flow. Knowing viscosity can help in a multitude of ways;
· Knowledge of your product’s viscosity is essential when determining pourability, dipping and coating properties
· Viscosity largely dictates the ease of operation in any production because it helps to determine a multitude of other data.
· Viscosity is essential in field…Read more >
