TQC Sheen Gel Strength Tester – DV2400

The TQC Sheen Gel Strength Tester is especially suited to assessing the yield strength and consistency of thick paints and other materials, such as gels, putties and more.  


Test the yield strength of gels and paints

The Gel Strength Tester DV2400 (previously known as Sheen 414N) is an easy-to-use yield strength testing solution that offers fast and accurate results. It’s especially suited to assessing the yield strength and consistency of thick paints and other materials such as gels and putties. 

This digital instrument offers automated motor operation and a digitally controlled motor, allowing for high-precision measurements in krebs units, cP or grams. 

A reliable gel strength tester

Knowing the yield strength of various paints, gels and putties is essential when manufacturing a wide range of products. You need to know that inks and coatings are well adhered and as what point of stress they may deform. Likewise, it’s important to know the yield strength of plastics, polymers, gels and films, especially when testing flexible packaging. What to know more? Check out everything you need to know about yield strength testing 

The Gel Strength Tester DV2400 is also useful in determining the viscosity of a variety of gels and paints, which is essential information if you want to be sure that they will stay in place over time. Find out more about how to measure viscosity 

How the TQC Sheen Gel Strength Tester Works

The TQC Sheen Gel Strength Tester offers a straightforward test and inspection solution for testing yield strength. A 250ml can containing the sample is magnetically fastened onto the turntable of the instrument. This turntable is loaded with a calibrated spring displaying an engraved scale of 0-450 gm/cm. 

When immersed into the sample, the Gel Strength Tester’s flat (4 x 2 cm) paddle spindle (D) rotates automatically to the set speed of 0.5 – 5.0rpm. The paddle spindle drives the whole can and turntable. After a peak reading followed by a short time of stabilization, a steady torque value is indicated on the Gel Strength Tester’s scale. 

Alternative paddle formats are available upon request, allowing for a wider range of viscosity products to be tested.
