Vicat Softening Temperature

The Vicat softening temperature is the temperature at which a flat-ended needle penetrates the specimen to the depth of 1 mm under a specific load.

Rotational rheometry

Rotational rheometry is a powerful technique for the measurement of complex shear rheology across all material types – sensitive enough to measure the viscosity of dilute polymer solutions, and yet robust enough to measure the viscoelasticity of high modulus polymers or composites

Capillary rheometry

Capillary rheometers principle is based on measurement of the melt flow, by a pressure applied through the precisely dimensioned capillary.


The Rheotens® technology has proven its efficiency to provide very reproducible and accurate measurements. It is also possible to determine slight differences in molecular structure which cannot be found by other methods.
