[VIDEO] Topic Tuesday: Thixotropy - the recovery after shear

Posted by Mats Hjørnevik 2. January 2018

topic-tuesday4-thixotropy.jpgThis weeks topic is a follow-up from our last Topic Tuesday. Then we talked about the shear thinning properties of cellulose fibrils. Now, we show you the recovery effect and properties - the thixotropy - of the cellulose fibrils back to its original viscosity. With practical examples! 

Todays topic: the recovery of viscosity - thixotropy

The technical application manager from the Cellulose Fibrils division in Borregaard, Otto Soidinsalo, just continue providing you with some insight on the cellulose fibrils. Just as in episode #3 - Shear thinning properties, he brought some examples to demonstrate his thoughts.
