This instrument allows measurement of visco-elastic physical properties under a curing process and the surface layer physical properties of the material being measured and other materials such as inorganic materials like concrete, cosmetics, paper and foods. This means that the test method does not depend on the substrate.
All materials transform from a liquid state to a solid state through certain actions (heat, light, time and others) and produce various physical properties. The change in phase from a liquid to a solid causes various problems. The most important item to evaluate from among the various material evaluations is the change in age of the chemical-physical performances in the process of curing and drying from a liquid state to a solid state.
This instrument has applications for the development/improvement, quality evaluation, designing, trouble-shooting, and the production line and life evaluation of materials.
Fix the test piece coating plate on the cooling/heating block. Set the pendulum so that the knife-edge, the fulcrum of the swing, comes vertically into contact on the test piece coated surface.

MEASUREMENT OF VISCOELASTIC PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Apply free vibration to the pendulum. For measurement of physical properties, use a cylindrical edge. By analyzing this vibration, the curing process and surface’s physical properties can be evaluated.
