The Relationships Between Rheology and Particle Characterisation

This 2 hour seminar held at all major cities around Oz presented some of the fundamental properties of dispersed systems, demonstrated how these affect rheological properties and how this understanding allows the rheology of the material to be controlled.

Many materials in use today are disperse systems where one substance (often particulate) is dispersed in another phase. These material types include: adhesives,cosmetics and personal care formulations, paints, inks and surface coatings, pharmaceuticals and polymer systems. In the inks industry, for example, the understanding of rheology and particle properties allows solid pigment content to be changed in different formulations whilst maintaining the critical characteristics required for optimised printing.

The physical properties of the dispersed particles, such as the average particle size, the size distribution, the zeta potential or charge on the particles and even the shape of the particles all help to influence the overall (bulk) material properties such as the rheology.
