Thixotropic and rheopectic

Thixotropic and rheopectic are non-Newtonian liquids that react as a result of the length of time that stress is applied.

Some liquids behave differently with stress (application of force) over time. Rheopectic liquids increase in viscosity as stress over time increases. Thixotropic liquids decrease in viscosity as stress over time increases.
