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.
