Various emulsions are used in the cosmetics and food industry as well as in abrasives and oil production. The quality of these emulsions has to be checked continuously and the composition of these emulsions has to be continuously varied and improved in terms of R&D.
In addition to long-term stability of emulsions, the viscosity plays an essential role. Viscosity experiments can simulate the real application conditions, e.g. in the resting state (shape stability, thixotropy) or at very high shear rates (application by a syringe or by spraying).
