Rheology Lab Information

Aalto University
Department of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering
  • Anton Paar MCR 301
  • UV curing system: allows the investigation of rheological properties during UV-initiated curing reactions e.g. in inks, glues and coatings
  • Pressure cell: can be used to simulate process conditions, measure the effect of pressure on rheological properties, or prevent sample evaporation above the boiling point
  • Immobilization cell: used to investigate the immobilization kinetics and water retention of paper coatings
  • SER fixture for extensional rheology: provides information about molecular structure, branching, temperature stability, shrinkage, relaxations, and brittleness as well as the adhesion and peel strength of films and fibers
