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

Elect your representative in the ESR
The individual members can now elect their representatives in the governing Committee of the European Society of Rheology. You are a member if you attended the latest AERC or if you paid the membership fee. There are also representatives of the national and regional societies in the ESR Committee who are elected by these societies, see the structure on the ESR web page.
The representatives should speak for you and make sure the Committee considers all areas of rheology and all geographical areas (for ESR: Europe and Africa). So, take this opportunity to make your voice heard and elect the representatives who will represent you.
Log in to the ESR member area and click “Election Representative of the Individual Members”. The poll is open until July 25.
