1. Data table of dynamic viscosity of common liquids

Please find below a table of common compounds and their dynamic viscosity at a given temperature, aggregated from different sources.

  • Warning 1 : values were not verified individually
  • Warning 2 : viscosity is sensitive to many parameters and the values below are general. For example different vegetable oil from different origins can have different viscosity, the actual concentration / density has also an influence. The data below are thus only for a 1st reference, quick calculation, but no detail design, no guarantee are given upon them.
Please scroll down, the compounds are sorted alphabetically ; or use the Ctrl+F function to find what you are looking for.
