Every industry has products which have a consumer/end-user expectation of the physical/mechanical properties whether it is industrial materials, cosmetics, food, adhesives or pharmaceuticals.

Because of its adaptability, texture analysis has become commonplace in many industries to measure a specific or range of characteristics or properties relating to the way a material behaves, breaks, flows, sticks, bends, etc.

Whether it’s in new product development or as part of quality control procedures, major manufacturers routinely apply texture analysis techniques to carry out a wide range of measurements. Tests could be performed to analyse raw materials or excipients, semi-finished goods, packaging and finished products – the application of texture analysis could be at any stage of manufacture.

A Texture Analyser can be employed to determine the effects of raw material or excipient quality as a result of substitution or the adjustment of formulation or processing variables on end product acceptability. This could be to measure the ‘mouthfeel’ properties of food, the flow properties of creams and pastes, the compressibility/tensile strength of packaging, the break or bend of a product or the tackiness of adhesives.

Within each industry there are textural/mechanical properties that are particular to its products. Each product has properties that are either expected or undesirable and it is the job of a Texture Analyser to objectively measure these characteristics to ensure your products meet their physical requirements and consumer expectations.
