A viscometer (also called viscosimeter) is an instrument used to measure the viscosity of a suspension. Our test sand offers the possibility to compare the consistency of cement paste, cement mortar, plaster or other suspensions. The viscometer tests of cement paste or mortar generates knowledge about
- workability characteristics,
- the temperature development or the temperature sensitivity,
- the stiffening behavior and
- the mode of action of admixture or additives.
The Viscometer-Test Sand is uniformly composed and usually used for the production control in laboratories. Common mix designs for the tests are: 1000 g Viscometer – test sand, 662 g cement, 331 g water.
