General Purpose Oil Fluids are best suited for those instruments using Cone/Plate Viscometers/Rheometers.

Confused about which standards you need? See our FAQ section.


  • Accuracy: +/-1% of viscosity value
  • Appropriate for use at shear rates greater than 500 sec-1
  • Recommended for use with cone/plate Viscometers at viscosities above 5,000 cP
  • Brookfield oil viscosity standards are hydrocarbon based, either mineral oil or polybutenes  Note: Other oil fluids are available – call for details
  • Brookfield Viscosity Standards are accurate to ±1% of the stated viscosity and are certified by methods traceable to the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The selection of one or two fluids will normally provide sufficient measurement points to verify calibration of your instrument. All fluids are supplied in 1/2 liter (1 pint) containers complete with a certificate of calibration. CAP Oil Fluids are supplied in 150 mL (4 oz) containers


REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The law entered into force on 1 June 2007.

The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
