Ten Ways to... Control Rheology by Changing Particle Properties

Ten Ways to... Control Rheology by Changing Particle Properties

The newest addition to the popular ‘Ten Ways to…’ series of educational papers provides practical guidance on developing high performance suspension products with enhanced consumer appeal. ‘10 ways to...control rheology by changing particle properties’ explores how controlling particle characteristics, such as particle size distribution, concentration and zeta potential, enables formulators to engineer suspension performance. Suspensions are used in the formulation of a wide range of every day products from medicines, drinks and foodstuffs to paints, inks and coatings. This paper is therefore valuable to formulators working across a wide range of industries.

Many products in every day use, such as foodstuffs, pharmaceutical medicines and creams, drinks, paints, inks and personal care products, are suspensions. This whitepaper, part of Malvern Instruments’ popular ‘Ten Ways to…’ series,  explores how the properties of particles in a suspension can be manipulated to control rheology and, consequently, product performance. The impact of particle size and size distribution, particle shape, particle loading and zeta potential are all discussed, providing a comprehensive guide to the strategies that can be deployed to tailor suspension properties to meet formulation goals.
