Abstract:  This presentation on Rheology reviews the basic principles of rheology including its definition and its influencers – chemical structure, morphology, and environmental conditions.  The impact by various deformation forces including compression, tension and shear will be examined to demonstrate flow and viscosity profiles as a function of stress, temperature and time.  An examination of the chemistry of commercial rheological agents will help clarify their efficacy in various formulation types including waterborne and solventborne systems.

A full day course on Rheology is available via the following link . . . Rheology.
