Coatings, Paints, and Inks Viscometers
Coatings, paints, and inks are complex fluids that must be formulated and used within strict parameters to achieve the desired film weight, thickness and image characteristics. For these fluids, the proper viscosity is a key requirement to consistently delivering the desired end product quality, maintain smooth-running equipment, and optimize material use.
Cambridge Viscosity helps manufacturers and commercial users of coatings, paints, and inks to monitor and control viscosity in any conditions. Our accurate, reliable, and self-cleaning sensors – coupled with temperature-compensated viscosity equations built into our software – ensure product quality, clarity and resolution of desired images, proper and uniform film thickness, and optimization of throughput processing rates. These benefits apply to all coatings, paints, and inks processes, including dip, spray, roll, or flow.
These benefits are demonstrated in making coatings, paints, and inks and in the full range of their applications, including:
- Optical coating and plastic part coating
- Automotive, wood, and metal coating and painting
- Adhesive and paste application
- Printing, paper coating, and can coating
- Electronics coating
- Investment casting and molding
- Medical Coating
In-line, in-tank, or in-lab, Cambridge Viscosity technology and equipment offer high performance and low maintenance costs. Follow the links at right to explore some of our success stories and other information relating to coatings, paints, and inks.
