What Does a ARES-G2 Rheometer Do?
ARES-G2 Rheometer measures both viscosity and viscoelasticity of fluids, semi-solids and solids.
It provides information about the materials:

  1. Viscosity: Function of shear rate or stress, time and temperature dependence.
  2. Viscoelastic properties (G', G", tand) with respect to time, temperature, frequency and stress/strain.
  3. Transient response (relaxation modulus, creep compliance, creep recovery).


ARES-G2 Rheometer Instrument Specifications:

ARES-G2 Rheometer Applications:

1. Dispersion and Suspensions.
    Examples are:

  • Paints, coatings.
  • Ink.
  • Food.
  • Drilling fluids.
  • Cosmetics.
  • Pharmaceuticals.
  • Personal products. "Shampoos, Shower gels…..etc"


2. Polymers.

  • Immiscible polymer blends.
  • Polymer melts and polymer solutions.
  • Thermosetting polymer.

What Is The ARES-G2 Rheometer?
The TA Instruments ARES-G2 Rheometer is a mechanical spectrometer capable of subjecting a sample to a Dynamic (sinusoidal) strain deformation, Steady shear strain deformation or Transient test. The ARES-G2 Rheometer measures the resultant torque generated by the sample in response to this shear strain.


ARES-G2 System Components:

  • Motor.
  • Stage.
  • Transducer.
  • Keypad.
  • Touch screen display.
  • Geometries.
  • Forced convection oven.
