The Elcometer 2353 ISO Viscosity Flow Cups are very easy to use instruments made of anodized aluminium with a stainless steel orifice, for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.
The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds(s) flow time. If the Standards stipulate conversion methods the flow time can be converted into Centistokes (cSt) using the Elcometer ElcoCalc™ Mobile Apps.
Calibration certificates which offer traceability and assurance that each viscosity cup has been individually tested and comply to Standards are also available.
The cups can be supplied separately or with an adjustable stand which includes a precision level and an overflow glass draw plate. They can also be supplied with a flow jacket for temperature control (thermojacket).
