Procedure of preparation brittle gel sample for rheological measurements In plate-plate system

Renata Cicha-Szot


New way of preparation brittle gel samples for determining gel strength during oscillatory measurements in plate-plate system was presented in this paper. Presented procedure of sample preparation greatly decrease a cost of selection proper additive for improving gel strength and enable to obtain more reliable evaluation of gel’s mechanical properties. Moreover, by external preparation of corrosive samples (e.g. silicate gelling systems) gel’s aging time can be prolonged without the impact on sensor’s lifetime
