stickiness, tackiness, work of adhesion


Three creams formulations were tested with a TA-30 3” Diameter Plate with adhesive test settings. Clear differences were seen in the tackiness, work-of-adhesion, and the initial gradient on the compression. In a study to test the ability of the TA.XTPlus to effectively test the stickiness of creams and ointments, it was found that the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer was able to quantify the tackiness of the tested creams and ointments.
