What is a Viscosity Reference Standard?

What are Viscosity Reference Standards?

A Viscosity Reference Standard verifies certain elements of a fluid’s viscosity.

Industries using them (for example) are food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and petrochemicals. This could be to test kinematic viscosity,  CCS Dynamic Viscosity, Density, or tolerance to low or high temperatures.

Viscosity Reference Standards have precise, accredited viscosity values, ranging from low to high temperature, and are integral in quality control checks and audits. By checking a product against the Reference Standard, you ensure accuracy and customer satisfaction.

Viscosity Reference Standards have a few aliases, such as Viscosity Measurement Standards, and Viscosity Reference Materials. They can also be found under the umbrella term of Reference Standards or Reference Materials.
