Development and experimental examination of a descriptive model to determine the rheological behaviour of waxes (storage, application, drying) on the basis of the internal structures that form
In the automotive industry in particular, cavities are preserved with wax systems which are applied by spraying. Three different material systems are used here: 100% systems and systems which use organic solvents or water as the solvent. The aqueous wax systems are complex, non-Newtonian emulsions whose rheological behaviour is adjusted to reduce undesirable or maximise desirable effects when the formulation is developed. There is as yet no overall descriptive model for the complex rheological behaviour. This project aims to develop such a model and to examine it by means of experiments and statistical analyses of the experiments.
