The versatility of the Cone and Plate viscometers makes these instruments a practical tool for any QC or R&D lab requiring quick and easy testing of materials.
The CAP 1000+ and CAP 2000+ is designed for high shear applications.
The CAP 1/23 is designed for lower shear applications such as automotive clear coats and base coats.

Guide to Viscosity Measurement
Viscosity is an important property of liquids to determine how they flow, spread, or level under certain conditions. It can be defined as a liquid’s internal resistance to flow. Being able to measure the viscosity will allow to predict the behavior in a process or an application. When applying a paint by roll application the paint viscosity will strongly influence the amount of paint applied per surface area, thereby determining both yield and hiding power. It is crucial for liquid products to undergo a viscosity measurement in incoming and outgoing QC.Read more
