Determine aggregation level of construction material using Schleibinger Viscomat NT rotational viscometer, available from Rheology Solutions .
The formation of larger bodies by the joining of several-smaller ones causes an increase in apparent volume fraction. The net result of aggregation can be increases in yield point and viscosity, and an increase in the propensity of the solids to settle. Determining the level of aggregation by measuring the viscosity and yield point of a construction material will provide valuable information on the processability of the material.
The Schleibinger Viscomat NT rotational viscometer will provide information on the workability of a fine-grained building material such as cement pastes, mortar, fine concrete, and plaster and development of admixtures for mortar, concrete and SCC.
