Elcometer Frikmar Viscosity Dip Cups

Thanks to its handle, the Elcometer Frikmar Viscosity Dip Cup is very easy to use to perform viscosity checks on site or during the manufacturing process.

It is ideal for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and other similar products.

Simply dip the cup into the product to be measured, lift it out and measure how long it takes for the contents to empty through the orifice.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds (s) flow time, which can be converted to Centistokes (cSt) if the Standard stipulates a conversion method.

Several ranges are available, according to the Standards being used; from 7 to 1100cSt.



ElcoCalc™ Mobile App

Fast and easy to use, ElcoCalc™ instantly converts viscosity cup flow time in seconds into Centistokes (cSt).

ElcoCalc™ is free software that is available on Android and the App Store. Compatible with Android™ mobile devices running Android™ 2.1 or later and also iPod, iPhone and iPad running iOS 4.0 or later.

How to measure viscosity using Elcometer Dip Cups

When measuring the viscosity of a liquid, it is a common misconception that you are measuring how thick or thin a liquid is. What you are really measuring is the resistance a fluid has to flow.


There are a number of ways to measure the viscosity of a liquid, one of which is dip cups.
