Ten Ways to Optimize Rheology to Increase Dispersion, Colloidal and Emulsion Stability
13 Oct 2014
In this white paper, ten points are highlighted for general methods of designing and interpreting rheological tests to optimize sample stability. These points are particularly applicable to colloidal systems (for which the size of the dispersed phase is <1mm) such as emulsions and sols. Even classical non-colloidal systems such as large particle (> 1μm) dispersion's can also be evaluated with the same methods. Each point focuses on one property of the material and discusses optimization to help facilitate sample stability.
