Exploring the impact of particle characteristics on suspension rheology
29 March 2017

This white paper looks at how particle properties impact suspension rheology, in particular, how particle size, shape and zeta potential influence viscosity and stability and how these properties can be manipulated to tailor this behavior. The article also discusses tools for characterizing suspensions, including use of laser diffraction and dynamic light scattering (DLS), electrophoretic light scattering, automated imaging and use of rotational rheometers to probe performance of suspensions.
