Read the Application note from Brookfield Ametek, regarding the measurement of viscosity in Sunburn Treatment Gel.
Sunburn Treatment Gel is very important for everyone around this time, especially after one has enjoyed the sun a little bit too much. It naturally cools and soothes the burn while moisturising the skin.
As Summer goes on with high temperatures, we are sharing an application note from the experts at Brookfield Ametek, regarding the measurement of viscosity in Sunburn Treatment Gel.
Three different methods were tested for this paper, using different Brookfield Viscometers/Rheometers, spindles and speed - all appropriate to perform testing in creamy, pasty, or gel-like materials.
In these methods, they used the Brookfield RVDV-II+Pro as well as the Brookfield RVDV-III Ultra and the Brookfield RVYR-1 Rheometer. These are now obsolete instruments, but one could use the DV2T and DV3T which are perfect and suitable to be used for the same applications.
Be sure to read the application note and discover more about the viscosity profile of Sunburn Treatment Gel.
