Glass is an ideal container material for pharmaceuticals products regarding thermal and chemical resistance, and tunable transparency or selective absorption. However, glass needs high temperatures to melt and processing is highly dependent on the melt viscosity of the liquid glass. This study by Anton-paar study presents the temperature dependent viscosity of two packaging glass materials, as well as measurements of the visco-elastic properties. Quantitative data on flow and deformation behaviour are relevant for temperatures above and below the working point.

Dr. Daniela Ehgartner has been working at Anton Paar in Austria since 2017. She is the international product manager for high temperature rheometry and thus responsible for rheometers enabling the characterization of the viscosity and visco-elastic properties of glass, rock and metal melts, slags and molten salts up to 1730°C. She graduated at Vienna University of Technology (VUT) and was awarded a PhD in Technical Chemistry at VUT in 2017.

Dr. Christopher Giehl has been working for Anton Paar Germany GmbH since 2018 as a Trainer and Product Specialist for Rheometry. He studied Mineralogy with a major in Material Sciences (Diploma 2010), holds a PhD in Volcanology (2014) awarded by University of Tübingen (Germany) and was a Lab Manager and Assistant Professor for Experimental Mineralogy (2014-2017) at Kiel University (Germany).
Before diving into the world of rheology immersing himself into the real flow, he has been working on high-temperature glass synthesis and development of analytical methods, novel ways to manufacture transparent nano-ceramics, crystallization behaviour and immiscibility of silicate and metal melts, hazard assessment for volcanic ash in jet turbine engines, as well as thermal expansion and corrosion of materials, among others.

At Anton Paar, he is responsible for Training & Education, but upholds his keen interest and passion for research and development topics. He is particularly interested in high temperature rheometry applications involving glass melts, slags, salt and metal melts.
