Printing, coating and surface treatment


Drift-free, real-time viscosity measurement guarantees quick and good return on investment of printing, painting, and coating processes. Discover the Sofraser process viscometers dedicated to viscosity measurement of inks, paints and varnishes.



- Material waste due to improper recipe blending for multi-components formulations
- Product evolution due to solvent evaporation
- Losses due to excessive product usage
- Nonconformity due to inhomogeneous or out-of-specification product

The Sofraser viscometer is THE ORIGINAL tuning-type sensor (vibrating rod at resonance frequency).
Often copied, never surpassed.


- Provide coating and painting quality and consistency through homogeneity and uniformity
- Continuously deliver viscosity and temperature information
- Are compatible with solvents and water-based formulations
- Are very tolerant to particles
- Can easily be connected to controllers and installed on coating circulation loops
- Contain no wearing parts and require very low maintenanceSofraser-Contact

The Viscosity is the ESSENTIAL physical parameter for ensuring a high quality
standards in Paints, Coatings and Printing industries.
