The PAINTLAB+ Cone and Plate Viscometer provides high accuracy viscosity measurement of non-newtonian paints and coatings.

This Viscometer is specifically designed to provide stringent testing conditions to allow the measurement of these materials as the viscosity changes according to the shear stress that is applied. A precision wear resistant cone rotating at high speed on a temperature controlled plate produces standardised shear rates during measurement.

Fully automated operation ensures rapid and accurate positioning of the cone onto the plate each time after the plate temperature has reached its preset value. Results are displayed instantly on screen after test.. Real-time high resolution graphing provides monitoring of changes in viscosity during measurement allowing the identification of changes in flow behaviour.

Features

  • Real time high resolution graphing of test samples
  • Results displayed on screen immediately after test
  • High stability motor speed control for accuracy and repeatability of measurement
  • Easy clean design- even in the harshest environment both screen and chassis are easy to clean
  • Date / time stamped results output to printer
  • Annual re-calibration can be performed by user
  • Extended warranty

Viscosity measurement of coatingsis essential at each stage of the manufacturing process to ensure consistent quality standards.

Many parameters can effect the rheological behaviour of a finished coating resulting in undesirable effects such as inconsistent performance, poor levelling orsagging. The use of high precision measuring instruments is therefore essential in quality control to prevent such problems occurring during formulation, manufacture and application.

The Rhopoint PAINTLAB+ Cone & Plate Viscometer provides high accuracy viscosity measurement of non-newtonian paints and coatings. This viscometer is specifically designed to provide stringent testing conditions to allow the measurement of these materials as the viscosity changes according to the shear stress that is applied.

The Novo-Gloss 20/60/85° gloss meter is designed to meet the measurement criteria for most gloss measuring applications.

The Novo-Gloss Trio low cost glossmeter is ideal for gloss measurements of all surfaces and is suitable for matt to mirror gloss surfaces

The Novo-Gloss 60 degree gloss meter is suitable for measuring gloss in most applications from matt to high gloss finishes.

The Novo-Gloss Dualgloss gloss-meter is perfect for basic gloss measurement and is best suited for mid to mirror gloss surfaces (10+ GU @60°)

Designed specifically to measure the gloss of surfaces that cannot be measured using traditional gloss-meters, the Novo-Gloss Flex 60 gloss-meter combines the functionality and reporting of an advanced gloss-meter with an ultra lightweight remote measuring head.

The Novo-Curve glossmeter is a unique instrument with specially designed optics for accurately measuring curved surfaces and small areas. It can also be used to measure flat surfaces and areas which are too small to measure with standard glossmeters. 

The Novo-Gloss 20/60/75ºS gloss meter is a fully featured instrument measuring the gloss of surfaces.

The Rhopoint Novo-Gloss Lite 45º measures gloss using a specialist geometry often specified in the ceramics, metal manufacturing and film making industries.

The Rhopoint IQ quantifies surface quality problems that are invisible to a standard glossmeter and profiles how light is reflected from a surface.

The Rhopoint IQ Gloss Haze & DOI Meter quantifies surface quality problems that are invisible to a standard glossmeter and profiles how light is reflected from a surface.

The Rhopoint IQ Flex 20 quantifies surface quality problems such as orange and peel and haze that are invisible to a standard glossmeter and profiles how light is reflected from a surface.

The Rhopoint IQ-S was specially designed and built to match automotive interior gloss measurement standards. IQ-S gloss measurements are fully compatible with existing Micro-TRI-gloss-S results.

The Rhopoint IQ Concrete Clarity Meter measures reflected image quality; it is the only hand held instrument that profiles how light is reflected from a surface. Glossmeters are usually used to measure the “shininess” of a surface but are not sensitive to common effects which reduce appearance quality.

Measures the minimum film forming temperature of water based coatings. Determines the MFFT of latex, emulsions and adhesives -10°C to 60°C operation

Measures the minimum film forming temperature of water based coatings. Determines the MFFT of latex, emulsions and adhesives -10°C to 90°C operation

Required when the temperature of the water supply to the instrument is >20ºC higher than the target temperature at the cold end of the
selected range.

The PAINTLAB+ Krebs Viscometer from Rhopoint Instruments offers high accuracy viscosity measurement with advanced functionality.

This Viscometer is specifically designed to provide stringent testing conditions to allow the measurement of these materials as the viscosity changes according to the shear stress that is applied.

The Paintlab+ Viscomixer is a versatile instrument used to measure the change in viscosity during the addition of a solvent or thinner.
