Final Mooney Viscosity meaning
Mooney viscometer has a history of more than 70 years since Mooney published an article in 1934, and has been widely used in scientific research and process control in the rubber industry. Since the development of synthetic rubber, Final Mooney Viscosity has become an important indicator of synthetic rubber.
The determination of Final Mooney Viscosity is carried out using a disc shear viscometer. Mooney viscometer consists of rotor, mold cavity, heating and temperature control device, ejector rotor device and torque measurement system.
Final Mooney Viscosity meaning：
Final Mooney Viscosity is an important index to measure the average molecular weight and plasticity of rubber, which can reflect the processing performance of rubber. The Final Mooney Viscosity value is high, indicating that the molecular weight of the rubber is large, and the rubber compound is not easy to be mixed and extruded. If the Final Mooney Viscosity is too low, the tensile strength of the vulcanized product will be low.
It is of great significance for synthetic rubber, compound rubber, reclaimed rubber and other fields.
