ATS RheoSystems has introduced its new STRESSTECH HR rheometer, equipped with a novel UV cure monitoring accessory and proprietary fast oscillation data acquisition software. The instrument uses the integrated light triggering capability and data collection rates greater than 100 points/s, along with combined shrinkage measurements for monitoring the real-time cure profiling of light activated DNS materials. The information is critical to optimizing formulations and processing conditions, and predicting product performance and acceptance. The new rheometer's fast oscillation data analysis capability allows for real-time UV cure profiling and shrinkage determination by providing the ability to capture the rapid, transient changes in the material.
