RHEOLOGY Solutions is offering free sample testing on two product samples plus a report detailing the extensional differences between the products.
The sample testing will be conducted using a HAAKE CaBER 1 extensional rheometer. Measurements using the HAAKE CaBER 1 extensional rheometer will provide a quick insight into the material properties under an extensional deformation.
Sequence of a CaBER measurement
Printing speed is often limited by the formation of small droplets, so called 'misting'. The release of the ink follows an elongational pattern. The HAAKE CaBER extensional rheometer can detect materials that are more likely to mist or spatter.
Testing the extension properties before product application will identify products that are more likely to mist and spatter and allow you to adjust the formula and eliminate the problem. This would improve both process and product performance and provide a new QA/QC procedural step prior to final production.
