The effect of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) on the nonlinear viscoelasticity of Laponite suspensions containing NaCl was investigated with large amplitude oscillatory shear rheology. The molecular weight (Mw) of PEG was 4k, 10k and 35k, and the concentration of PEG was varied from 0.063 wt% to 2.4 wt%. The dynamic strain sweep showed that the nonlinearity appeared at γ0 > 30% with a stress overshoot at γ0 = 50–70%. The intensity ratio I3/1 from Fourier-transform increased with γ0 when entering the nonlinear regime and leveled off at γ0 ≥ 100% with higher slope and constant value for the PEG of higher Mw or lower concentration. I3/1 revealed the structure difference in the suspensions induced by adsorbing PEG in the nonlinear regime. The minimum- and large-strain rate viscosities ηM and ηL from the Lissajous curve were found to be sensitive to the nonlinear viscoelasticity and the peak of ηM and ηL appeared at lower γ0 with higher maximum following the same dependency as I3/1 on PEG Mw and concentration. The overall nonlinearity parameters NE and NV were proposed in this paper and demonstrated to reflect the difference in the Laponite suspensions with PEG more clearly and more effectively.
