The quality or state of being viscous.
A property possessed by a viscous fluid, being a resistance to the forces causing a fluid to flow, caused by interactions between the molecules of the fluid and between the fluid and the walls of the conduit through which it moves; also, a measure of such a property.
The measure of a fluid's tendency to resist a shearing force. The viscosity of a fluid affects the degree to which it resists flow under an applied force. Viscosity can remain constant, increase, or decrease as shear rate (flow rate) increases. Absolute viscosity is generally measured in centipoise. Kinematic viscosity includes the influence of the specific gravity of the fluid and is generally measured in centistokes. Kinematic Viscosity X Specific Gravity = Absolute Viscosity
An general ink term referring to the tack or flow properties of inks or varnishes.
A measure of the coating thickness of melted chocolate, which determines its ability to coat or enrobe confections. Melted chocolate has varying degrees of viscosity depending on its types (dark, milk, or white) and whether or not it is couverture, which contains a higher percentage of cocoa butter than regular chocolate.
