Dynamic mechanical analysis provides a sensitive means for determining thermodynamic characteristics by measuring the elastic and loss modulus as a function of frequency, termperature or time.
In addition, it provides an accurate determination of the glass transition temperature (Tg) of materials.
DSC ISO 11357
ASTM D3418
Differential scanning calorimetry gives information about the glass transition temperature (Tg), melting behaviour and gelation level of PVC and other compounds.
The heat deflection temperature is measured by applying a certain load while the sample is loaded in a three-point bending mode.
coefficient of linear thermal expansion (oven) DIN 53752 Samples are conditioned at -10°C, 23°C and 70°C. Length measurements at each temperature yields to the CLTE.
coefficient of linear thermal expansion (TMA) ISO 11359
Determination of the CLTE by means of dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) with a special thermal mechanical analysis (TMA) probe.
