MFIgenie - precise and low cost rheology

small logo

MFIgenie system

The melt flow test (extrusion plastometer) for polymers is one of the oldest and most entrenched tests in the plastics industry. It's popularity stems both from the long historical presence and it's substantially low cost compared to alternatives.
Melt Flow results (following standards like ISO and ASTM) contain information about the polymer being tested. With a little bit of additional equipment and software a whole host of information becomes available - in fact, the Melt Flow Tester becomes a valuable rheometer. The user becomes empowered to measure and understand the melt in much more detail, and , resolve more problems.
