Designed for beginners and experts. This handbook provides valuable information about how to get the most out of your TGA; DSC, TMA, and DMA.
Thermal analysis is the name given to a group of techniques used to determine the physical or chemical properties of a substance as it is heated, cooled or held at constant temperature. In this handbook, 21 chapters aim to provide both practical and theoretical advice to users of METTLER TOLEDO thermal analysis systems.
Learn about thermal events: Applications of material characterization are performed on DSC, TGA; TMA, DMA, Flash DSC, and hyphenated techniques. Learn how each instrument can be used to its full potential.
Classes of materials: Thermal Analysis can be used on a broad range of materials. The Thermal Analysis in Practice Handbook has many applications characterizing thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers, and many more types of materials.
Content: Introduction to Thermal Analysis; A Brief History of Thermal Analysis; Polymers; Basic Measurement Technology; General Thermal Analysis Evaluations; and more…
