Overview In this Tech Tip, we will discuss how to create user-defined variables in TRIOS. User-defined variables expand your capabilities for advanced analysis and custom reports within TRIOS software. Learn how to set custom scalar sample properties and create variables defined by a customized equation for both thermal analysis and rheology tests in this quick…
From shiny cars to streak-free walls, we demand a lot from our coatings and paints. A high-quality paint not only needs dazzling color, but also must offer the right material properties for a smooth application and drying process. Consistency is crucial: too thin and the paint will run and drip; too thick and it will clump and not dry evenly. Spray paints and coatings also need to be applied smoothly without clogging the spray device.
Bring Simplicity, Accuracy, and Uniformity to Your Coatings Testing If your lab is running the same tests over and over again, or has multiple users running the same tests, you want consistency in your testing process. TRIOS AutoPilot is a powerful tool for extending the capabilities of the TA Instruments Discovery Hybrid Rheometers. AutoPilot can…
Description The Powder Rheology Accessory expands the DHR’s capabilities to powders, enabling characterization of behaviors during storage, dispensing, processing and end use. Product development and process optimization are accelerated with quantitative measurements of dynamic flowability and shear properties of consolidated powder. Screening new formulations or incoming raw materials detects unexpected behavior to avoid large-scale…

Lyophilization, also called freeze-drying, is the process of removing water from a sample, often for preservation. Lyophilization involves the sublimation of a sample’s water content, usually through a rapid freezing process. Freezing materials quickly helps avoid the destruction of the cell walls in the sample from the formation of large ice crystals.
Hydrogels are three-dimensional porous strctures that can absorb large amounts of water. They can be made up of polymers, protein, peptides, colloids, surfactants, or lipids.1 Hydrogels’ ability to uptake large amounts of water is useful for many biological applications, including drug delivery and tissue engineering. Since a hydrogels’ properties change as it absorbs water, scientists must accurately characterize its behavior at different saturation amounts and in varying conditions.
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is being embraced as a versatile manufacturing technique across diverse industries. 3D printing allows for rapid prototyping and print-on-demand solutions to avoid the potential waste associated with batch runs.
