Mooney viscometer cutting-disc viscometers. Pre-curing (scorch), which Mooney viscosity provides for measurement, allows to measure Stress relaxation characteristics of combined and non-combined rubbers. The test is carried out by measuring the torque that must be applied under specified temperature and pressure conditions to rotate a metal disk in a rubber filled cylindrical test chamber at 2 rpm. The resistance of rubber to this rotation is expressed as the Mooney viscosity of the test piece.
