Many different experimental techniques for measuring the elongational properties of non-Newtonian fluids have been developed over the last 30 years. All these techniques were difficult to operate, generated complex flows and therefore confusing results. As a consequence successful commercially available instruments did not exist. The CaBER 1 is the first instrument to change this!

The CaBER system is an easy-to-use extensional rheometer for examining polymer solutions, suspensions, melts, adhesives, emulsions and a variety of other materials. The CaBER system can be used as an analytical instrument, or as a quality control tool.
