Measuring Angle of Slide. This experiment was designed to measure the flowable liquid retention potential ([sigma]-value) for Avicel PH 102, Fujicalin and Neusilin (carrier material, [[sigma].sub.Ca]), and Aerosil (coating material, [[sigma].sub.Co]) and the optimum liquid load factor ([L.sub.f]).
Each admixture has specific [sigma]-values which were determined and plotted against respective measured angle of slide for all nonvolatile liquid vehicles.
