In Alfatestlab we are experts in rheological characterization. We can support you to study the viscosity and viscoelastic properties of a wide range of fluids, semi-solid materials and dispersions: gels and hydrogels, body creams, toothpastes, oils, paints, inks, polymeric dispersions, bitumen, plastic materials, mayonnaises, jams, honey, etc.
From very low viscosity liquids up to solid materials, we can offer several types of measurements that will help understanding how and why these materials behave in some way. Discover here after!
|Samples||Liquid dispersions, Materials|
|Industry||Pharmaceutical, Ceramics, Inks, paints and coatings, Lithium-ion Batteries, Specialty chemicals, Food and Drinks, Home & Personal Care, Nanosystems, nanoparticles and colloids, Polymer and Plastics, Advanced Materials and Composites|
In Alfatestlab we provide rheology testing services to support formulation, process development and quality control processes. From very low viscosity liquids up to solid materials, we can offer several properties measurements such as viscosity, viscoelasticity, structure and thixotropy that will help understanding how the results relate to how these materials perform:
These and many other questions can find an answer using the right rheology test.
Most formulators, looking for some specific mechanical behavior for their products, should be aware of rheology. Good skillness and hands sensitivity are the right "tools" to get the right product, but to precisely measure these properties and ensure reproducible production a bit more of technology is needed: rheology is the right one and Alfatestlab is here to help. The following rheology tests list is what Alfatestlab can offer you:
Last but not least, AlfatestLab offers rheology knowledge and support such as:
The rheological properties influence many production processes (extrusion of a material, molding, spraying etc.) and the performance of finished products. Viscosity, visco-elastic properties, thixotropy etc. play key roles in the final application and often these characteristics must be different depending on product state, storage or application for instance. In AlfatestLab we are available for the characterization of your sample flow properties, both with classical rotational rheology in cone-plate configurations, flat-plate and coaxial cylinders, as well as with with other rheology techniques.

An accurate quality control of creams and lotions formulation is essential to provide products that are pleasant for the consumer, that provide a smooth and soft skin effect and, more importantly, a long-lasting hydration. The investigation of the rheological behavior of moisturizers can help to evaluate the structure, the stability and the spreadability of the formulation, avoiding customer claims or destabilization issues.
Alfatestlab is equipped with a full range of scientific instruments for the analysis and optimization of cosmetic formulations, and can provide analytical support to your R&D or quality control groups by monitoring a large number of physical parameters of raw materials, intermediate or final formulations.
In Alfatestlab we support the food industry since several years in formulation, deformulation and bench-marking projects, trouble shooting and R&D by providing material characterization by innovative analytical techniques.

Chocolate is a complex suspension of non-fat particles (sugar, cocoa, milk powder particles) dispersed in cocoa butter. Particle size, rheology and thermal analysis help controlling texture, flavour and stability propeties of chocolate products. Discover how...
The evaluation of different rheological agents and gelling components can lead to an economic saving. Obviously, if the original properties are kept in the final product. Find how in this tech note.
