ASTM D2556 - 14 Standard Test Method for Apparent Viscosity of Adhesives Having Shear-Rate-Dependent Flow Properties Using Rotational Viscometry
Description of Standard
4.1 The principle of measurement is based upon a reversible isothermal change in apparent viscosity with change in rate of shear produced by a change in rotational speed.
4.2 Measurement is performed with a rotational viscometer under standardized conditions with rigid control of the time intervals of measurement. Viscosity readings are obtained at the end of 1 min for each rotational speed. Changes from the lowest speed to the highest speed, and return to the lowest speed, are made without stopping the instrument.
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the apparent viscosity of shear-rate-dependent adhesives using a rotational viscometer.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
