ISO 2884-2

Introducing ISO 2884-2 - Industrial Physics 

ISO 2884-2 is an international ISO standard that uses a rotary viscometer in order to determine the viscosity of paints, varnishes and related products. 

This ISO standard approach is particularly useful during the production and thinning process for products with a viscosity of up to 34 pascal seconds.  

There are a number of ISO tests to measure viscosity and ISO 2884-2 uses a disc - or ball - rotary viscometer which is operated at a specified speed.   

Why is viscosity testing with a rotary viscometer important?

Viscosity testing during the test and inspection process allows you to choose the right materials for the job – so your surfaces look as good as they’re supposed to, from production to final destination. 

Accurate viscosity testing to the ISO 2884-2 standard gives you confidence that your paints, inks, varnishes and coatings will stay in one place! Over time, deformation or flow can have a disastrous effect on the appearance of products or packaging. 

You’ll often find rotary viscometers used in production labs and as part of a solid quality control process. This method of viscosity testing measures the torque needed to turn an object that’s been placed in the sample fluid being tested.

So, how can Industrial Physics improve your ISO 2884-2 testing? 

Our extensive range of viscosity cups and rotational viscometers help our customers to  rigorously check the quality control of their products to ISO standards. They also help you to improve the consistency and performance of your materials.  

TQC Sheen Digital Rotothinner™  

The Rotothinner™ offers a two in one instrument for viscosity testing. It enables easy,  continuous monitoring of the material viscosity during the addition of solvents and thinners to create supply or RFU viscosity.  

The flexibility of the Rotothinner™ gives you ultimate control over the viscosity reduction process, whilst also providing highly accurate stability analysis.​
