Paul N. Gardner Co., a distributor, producer, and designer of inspection instruments for paint, coatings, and related industries, has released a new line of versatile viscometers. The byko-visc RT offers precise measurement results with each test condition recorded for detailed results, analysis, and review. This precision is repeatable day-to-day and instrument-to-instrument. An ISO 17025 calibration certificate is supplied with each instrument to confirm its performance.

Joining the GARDCO offering of viscosity instruments, including flow cups, bubble viscometers, the digital stormer viscometer, and cone and plate viscometers, the byko-test RT now brings a comprehensive solution for customers’ quality control needs.

Available in two models, the byko-visc RT and byko-visc RT Lite, each can measure viscosity from near water-like to the most viscous epoxies, sealants, and pastes, all with equal efficiency and accuracy. The byko-visc RT tests the viscosity of liquids and pastes in compliance with ASTM D2196, ISO 2555 and ISO1652 standards.

The byko-visc RT features an easy snap-on spindle attachment and an adjustable stand. The new line is compatible with other rotational viscometer models in terms of results, measurement parameters, and accessories, like spindles. This will allow users to seamlessly transition to a byko-visc RT system.
