Scientists at North Carolina State University have been researching the effect of surface energy and viscoelasticity on the adhesiveness of caramel. The mechanical aspects of texture were evaluated on a TA.XTplus Texture Analyser. This included the measurement of hardness and pressure sensitive adhesion by compression. Hardness and adhesiveness were both found to decrease with increased protein and lipid content. Read more: http://bit.ly/2wNCWgu

$8.51 billion was spent in salons alone in 2015. In a 2015 study, nail professionals were asked about their biggest challenges – the greatest business challenge was voted “building and retaining clientele” and the number one technical spot was taken up by “staying current on trends and products”. The first point relies on consistently high product quality and the second on ensuring new products are up to the standard expected of the brand. Using a Texture Analyser can help with both of these challenges.‘Texture Analysis within the Nailcare Industry’ is a new article that is available for you to request. It covers a wide selection of cosmetics nail products and the variety of methods available for their physical property measurement. Within this article the Nail Polish Adhesion Rig is explained. This method has recently been developed by Stable Micro Systems to provide the solution to this assessment requirement. Request the article: http://bit.ly/2gQg9XF
