Tech/Engineering - Chemistry; Chem Sci/Eng / Spraying liquids
German term or phrase: Ausbuttern
This is from the operating instructions for a machine designed to spray a "dampening solution" onto items passing through an industrial process.

There is not a great deal of context for "Ausbuttern", just this one appearance in a list:
----
Prüfen Sie die Flüssigkeit, die versprüht werden soll,
ob sie den physikalischen Bedingungen genügt,
hinsichtlich
- Viskosität
- Temperatur
- Ausflocken
- ** Ausbuttern **
- Scherfestigkeit
- Verträglichkeit
in Verbindung mit den Materialien der Rotorenfeuchtung.
----

TIA for your ideas.

Explanation:
Unusual term, but I think it refers to the wetting power of the fluid (Benetzung)

BTW I'd use "wetting solution" rather than dampening here

Depending on the liquid, it could also refer to "de-emulsification" if it is an oil/water emulsion

Based on you last note, I also came up with "stability of emulsion". I put all the suggestions to the client, and this was the one they chose as the best fit.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for the fast answer! Re "dampening solution" - the customer calls there machine a "rotor dampening system", so unless the term it's completely meaningless, I think I'm stuck with "dampening" really.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Jonathan MacKerron: Wenske suggests "churn" for "buttern"; or coat/coating?
