About us

IKA is where people turn visions into reality.

When the corporate history of IKA began in 1910, China had not yet become a People's Republic and the word "globalization" had not been invented yet.

Today, the IKA group has over 900 employees at 10 locations on four continents and is proud to serve customers such as BASF, Bayer or Procter&Gamble. We are the leader in the world market in most of the product groups and a leading example for development and growth. Or as our new slogan expresses it: „IKA-Designed to work perfectly“.

The new ROTAVISC series determines the viscosity of liquids in all areas of application ranging from the laboratory to quality control. The four devices measure in different viscosity ranges. Regardless of a simple or demanding viscosity measurement - the ROTAVISC delivers rapid and accurate results. The scope of delivery includes a standard spindle set ( SP1-SP4), a protective bracket, temperature sensor, quick connector, hook connector and ROTASTAND stand.

News & Innovations

Consistency, stiffness, processability and flowability are just a
few of the factors that make up the desirable viscous behavior of
a cosmetic sample. They are therefore important parameters for
quality control in all manufacturing processes and in the application. The ROTAVISC series of viscometers allow for the precise
measurement of viscosity, as well as ease of use.
What is the correct viscosity of a cream? That depends on whether, for
example, it should penetrate the skin quickly or form a protective layer
instead. In the first case, the cream improves the smoothness of the skin,
in the second, it protects against infection, for example, if the skin gets
burned. In both situations, the cream should be easy to distribute evenly
while rubbing.
The respective viscous properties with different application requirements
can be checked by measuring the viscosity at different shear rates. In
order to ensure that the cream maintains a consistent level of quality, it
is thus important to control the viscosity of the product under different
