To evaluate whether torque registration can also be used to obtain information on the reaction kinetics, torque profiles were fitted with a kinetic formula derived from the model we developed previously [2, 40], Since the reaction mixture without homopolymer separation can be regarded as a basis for a product (thickening agent--viscosifier), the profiles of the apparent viscosity over time are also relevant for product properties like the occurrence of thixotropic behavior.
This article gives a brief history of attapulgite, a description of its mechanism that sets it apart from other thixotropic thickeners and stabilizers, and discusses its performance benefits in coatings.
During this process, the thixotropic behaviour was not manifested strongly.
The sweet spot of modern, low-viscosity solder pastes with more stable thixotropic properties is much bigger than the sweet spot of earlier generation high-viscosity, more thixotropic solder pastes.
Armacell says new thixotropic (gel-like) adhesives such as the new Armaflex RS850 are drip-resistant and guarantee neat application which has advantages for awkward installations where spillages would be hard to contain.

In combination, Huntsman says the system's good thixotropic and low exothermic properties lead to improved process efficiencies, characterised by easy handling and mixing, a long pot life of 240 minutes at 23[degrees]C, fast strength build-up and reduced curing cycle capabilities.
Suitable for a wide variety of cold solder applications, this 100% solid silver adhesive is solvent-free, non-bleeding, thixotropic, and non-flammable to replace leaded and lead-free hot solder.
Exelerate ZTF's thixotropic gel technology clings to equipment and surfaces to help dissolve low trans fat soils, making it easier to remove soils in hard-to-reach areas, including fryer hood vents, walls, ceilings and plant catwalks.
Flow curves of thixotropic fluids present distinction between the curves of increasing rate and decreasing rate, and this phenomenon is known as hysteresis.
