TMA is used to investigate the dimensional changes and softening of sample material as a function of temperature and/or time under a definite mechanical force. This equipment contains exchangeable sample holders for expansion, penetration, bending and tension measurements.

Applications

  • Determination of coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of metals, polymers, composites, ceramics and glasses.
  • Analysis of glass  transition and softening point.
  • Characterization of visco-elastic properties of polymers , tension test, behavior under pressure.

Specifications:

Max Sample length:   50 mm

Max Sample diameter:    9 mm

Temperature range: 

-150°C to 500°C, Room temp to 1000°C
(2 exchangeable furnace types)
