The Carl Stuart Group was founded in 1984 by Stuart and Gillian Smith. From a small beginning our business has grown to encompass many services and products, covering different market sectors and geographical regions. The focus of our business, however, remains the same. We are a customer orientated company and strive to meet and exceed your expectations in everything we do.

Sun’s Out: Bring on the Sunburn Gel

Sun’s Out: Bring on the Sunburn Gel

Sunburn Treatment Gel is very important for everyone around this time, especially after one has enjoyed the sun a little bit too much. It naturally cools and soothes the burn while moisturising the skin.

Summer goes on with high temperatures, we are sharing an application note from the experts at Brookfield Ametek, regarding the measurement of viscosity in Sunburn Treatment Gel.

Three different methods were tested for this paper, using different Brookfield Viscometers/Rheometers, spindles and speed - all appropriate to perform testing in creamy, pasty, or gel-like materials.

In these methods, they used the Brookfield RVDV-II+Pro as well as the Brookfield RVDV-III Ultra and the Brookfield RVYR-1 Rheometer. These are now obsolete instruments, but one could use the DV2T and DV3T which are perfect and suitable to be used for the same applications.

Be sure to read the application note and discover more about the viscosity profile of Sunburn Treatment Gel. Check out our website:
