Facts on Viscosity

Viscosity is a term for the internal friction of a medium. One can say that it is a measure of how viscous a media is. The higher the viscosity, the more viscous. The viscosity of a liquid is typically very temperature dependent. At rising temperatures, the viscosity of liquids decreases.

Therefore, most people find that they need to change the dosage and speed of the season, depending on the temperature-stable production conditions in which they work.

For example, water is "thin", whereas honey is "thick", so water has a lower viscosity than honey. Viscosity is a crucial factor in many production processes, because from it one can assess the product's consistency, pumping properties and "pourability".

The viscosity unit is Pas (pascal-second) and it is measured by stirring in the liquid. This precise measurement takes place at the individual manufacturers.
