NEW byko-visc RT: Rotate and Flow through Thick and Thin

Viscosity is an important material property which needs to be specified and controlled to optimize how a liquid flows, spreads, or levels under certain conditions. The byko-visc RT is available as a standard and lite version with models for low, medium or high sensitivity to cover a wide range of applications and versatility in data analysis.

  • Robust design with adjustable stand
  • Easy snap-on spindle attachment
  • Solvent resistant housing
  • Precise data from instrument-to-instrument & day-to-day
  • Intuitive navigation on a large color touch display
  • Ready right out of the box - no assembly needed!


byko-drive S:
Paint Application Automated

The byko-drive S is an automatic film applicator for consistent drawdowns with user selectable speeds 0 - 200 mm/s, with a glass plate plus clamp or a vaccum plate to fix a variety of substrates.

  • User selectable start and stop positions to accommodate different size charts
  • Small footprint to save on counter space
  • Drip pan for faster cleanup
  • Easy to operate user controls

The byko-drive S is designed to assist the user in achieving consistent film application by maintaining a consistent speed and drawdown pressure.

WEBseminar: Viscosity Basics

Viscosity plays a crucial role in the production and processing of fluids. The viscosity of paints and varnishes under certain shearing conditions usually has a direct bearing on storage stability, processing and flow.

Objective and reliable measurements with defined limits are therefore the prerequisite for a stable process with uniform quality.

Attend the WEBseminar to learn more! The participation is free of charge.
