PolyVISC® High Temp Dilute Solution Polymer Viscometer

For High Temp Dilute Solution Viscosity of Polymers in Organic Solvents to 135 °C

ASTM D1601, ASTM D2857, ASTM D4020, ISO 1628-1, ISO 1628-3

PolyVISC® is a high temperature, fully automated, benchtop capillary viscometer with an 11 position sample handler for unattended processing and testing of of dilute solution viscosity of polymers in organic solvents. The ultra-stable thermostatic air chamber provides temperature control up to 135 °C.

  • Elastomers
  • Plastics
  • Thermoplastic elastomers
  • Copolymers
  • Resins

Designed to meet specific polymer industry needs

  • Meets methods D1601, D2857, D4020, and ISO 1628-1, 1628-3
  • On-board software with specialized polymer calculations determines relative, inherent, reduced and intrinsic viscosity
  • Ultra-stable thermostatic air chamber with AIRBATH® technology provides excellent temperature control from 100 °C to 135 °C (± 0.03 °C).
  • Kinematic viscosity range: 0.3 mm2/s (cSt) to 30 mm2/s (cSt). 

Fully automated bench-top testing

  • User-friendly software controls the instrument and facilitates tasks such as sampling, measurement and viscometer tube washing.
  • 11 position sample handler allows for unattended operation.
  • Automated processing reduces operator to operator variability.

Compact, robust design

  • Bench-top design conserves valuable lab space.

Simplified maintenance & test versatility

  • AIRBATH® chamber allows for rapid temperature and viscometer changes.
  • Uses modified Ubbelohde tubes.
  • Volatile sample testing option provides protection from solvent evaporation to enhance test precision and reduce the presence of toxic or corrosive vapors in the AIRBATH® chamber.
