    In Part II of this series, we continued our discussion on viscosity by tackling the topic of thixotropy.  With this defined, we can now circle back to bring it all together and show how different measurement methods produce different results and how our measurement choices can actually work against us.

    In Part I of this series, we examined some of the issues with the viscosity cup measurement process and started to look at the fundamentals of fluid viscosity as a means of explaining the source of those problems.  In this installment, we pick up the discussion with a somewhat difficult topic:  thixotropy.

    Manufacturers who dispense fluids in their process (i.e. – paints and coatings, sealers and adhesives, potting compounds and encapsulants, etc.) all understand that the viscosity of that fluid is fundamental to the process out
