Course description

View Course Outline

We must understand how materials are affected, by their flow behavior, as a result of applied stress forces. This knowledge will allow a formulator to develop products with the best possible outcome considering production, storage, packaging, and application.

This intensive, accredited training course on rheology (chemistry, theory, mechanism, and application) reviews the basic principles of rheology including its definition and its influencers – chemical structure, morphology, and environmental conditions. The impact of various deformation forces including compression, tension, torque, and, particularly, shear will be reviewed to demonstrate the resulting flow profiles of viscosity as a function of shear stress and time.

The chemistry and ancestry of current rheological agents will help clarify the appropriate selection of these products for various formulation types including waterborne and solvent-borne systems.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Discuss The Essential Elements of Rheology
  • Explain Deformation Forces Affecting Rheology
  • Identify Viscosity Flow Profiles
  • List the Chemistry, Theory, and Mechanism of Current Rheological Agents
  • Describe Real World Application in an Industrial Coating Formulation

This course is designed for research and development as well as business area personnel engaged in a wide array of industries, including architectural paints, industrial coatings, printing inks, adhesives, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, personal care products, and cosmetics. It is targeted for formulation chemists as well as marketing, sales, and customer service personnel.

Managers and supervisors of the above-listed individuals would also benefit from this training by becoming acquainted with, and better understanding, the challenges involved with this technology.
