ASTM D1200

Introducing ASTM D1200 - Industrial Physics

ASTM D1200 is a global ASTM standard for viscosity testing using a Ford-type efflux viscosity cup. 

This ASTM test method will determine the package and application viscosities of a number of paints and other Newtonian, or near-Newtonian, liquids coatings including varnishes and lacquers. 

What is viscosity testing?

The higher the viscosity of a fluid, the more it will resist flow. And when you move two fluid layers against one another you create a friction: known as flow resistance. By measuring this resistance, it is possible to calculate the sample’s viscosity. 

The ASTM D1200 test method will determine the viscosity of Newtonian or near-Newtonian paints, varnishes, lacquers, and related liquid materials with a Ford-type efflux viscosity cup. If you want to work with non-Newtonian material that’s shear-thinning or thixotropic, then ASTM D2196 is a better fit.

So, how can Industrial Physics improve your ASTM D1200 testing?  

TQC Sheen Sheen Viscosity Cup ASTM D1200 Immersion Ford 

The Sheen viscosity cup ASTM D1200 immersion Ford is an ASTM compliant range of stainless steel viscosity cups. Our durable viscosity cups are precision engineered and offer good repeatability for viscosity testing. 

Each reliable viscosity cup has a fixed stainless steel inner cavity nozzle and handle and comes with a protective storage case.
