"Thermal analysis is a powerful and well proven tool for obtaining thermophysical properties of a great variety of materials"
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
Alt text
The operating technique is based on the difference in heat flow to a sample and to a reference , is monitored as function of temperature or time, while the sample issubjected to a controlled temperature programme.
Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (STA)
Alt text
It is used to perform TG and DTA of materials. It enables to measure mass changeand thermal effects of a great variety of application materials including thermal stability, decomposition behaviour, composition, phase transitions and melting processes comprehensively and quickly.
Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer (DMA)
Alt text
The DMA 800 has facility to conduct oscillatory experiments to measure the elasticity of polymer materials by providing dynamic mechanical deformation. Operating principle : A constant load applied to a sample begins to oscillate sinusoidally in a linear viscoelastic region of the sample material.
