High-end polymers

Automated LAUDA viscosity systems

In the automotive industry mainly, the trend of replacing sheet metal with high-quality technical plastics remains unbroken. One of the most important figures for the plastic quality is the viscosity number (reduced viscosity) as a measure for the chain length of the basic polymers. The change to polymer chain lengths when manufacturing component parts can be traced using viscosity measurements.

Here, the modular system of the automated LAUDA PVS viscosity measurement systems offers tailored configurations which minimize contact with very aggressive or toxic solvents. The entire analysis process, from preparation to polymer solutions, to sample loading and measurement, all the way to cleaning of the viscometers, is computer-controlled.
