Specific Gravity Cups used to determine the specific weight per unit volume of a liquid at a given temperature. These specific gravity cups are precision machined to a known internal volume. The pycnometer is filled with the sample to be measured, capped and weighed using precision balances. The sample mass at a known temperature can then be used to calculate its density. Made from stainless steel, the cup is used for determining the specific weight of paints and similar products. A tolerance of 0.1% is guaranteed. Testing is carried out in accordance with ISO at 23±2°C. This gravity cup consists of a cylindrical container and cover with a hole to allow any excess Paint (or Ink) to be removed when the cup cover is fitted tightly. This also ensures that no air bubbles are being trapped. T01-60801  T01-60865  T01-60860
