Polymer Rheology Case Study: Characterisation of the Physical Properties of Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

Polymer rheology testing to support formulation & product development

Polymer rheology testing is the study of how the stress in a material or force applied is related to deformation and flow of the material. Through detailed characterisation of formulated polymer products such as HA dermal filler products, formulators can gain a deeper understanding of product performance - in this case, these factors are directly linked to how the product is perceived to perform by both the clinician and consumer.

Understanding the rheological properties through laboratory testing can help to optimize products and process conditions, thereby saving costs and minimizing potential waste.  This whitepaper summarises the various rheological tools available that can be used to characterise materials. Case studies demonstrate how rheology has contributed to an improved understanding of the effect of polymer structure and inherent properties on processing behaviours.
