Effects of Particle Zeta Potential, Shape, and Size on Suspension Rheology

Malvern Instruments

From foods to ceramics, paints, and adhesives, many products are dispersions or suspensions of particles in a liquid medium.

The physical properties of dispersed particles in such systems, including particle size, concentration, and electric charge (zeta potential), can all strongly influence the overall (bulk) rheological properties of a suspension, therefore defining product behaviour and functionality.

Understanding these interactions is critical when it comes to achieving a desirable product performance.
