In this webinar, we will discuss the basic principles of TMA and present some interesting applications.
Thermomechanical analysis (TMA) is used to measure the dimensional changes of a material as a function of temperature. It is one of the most important thermal analysis techniques, complementary to the well-established DSC, TGA and DMA techniques. TMA quickly provides characteristic information on materials from very thin layers to large samples, plastic laminates, fibers, and single crystals. The technique also measures relaxation effects that are often not detected by DSC.
This webinar discusses the basic principles of TMA and presents examples of relevant applications. The characteristic values and properties most frequently studied are:
- Expansion coefficients
- Glass transition temperatures
- Softening temperatures
- Solid-solid transitions
- Melting behavior
- Understand the basics of Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)
- Gain insight into measurement modes of a TMA
- Learn why TMA is complementary to DSC
- Gain exposure to TMA application examples from different industries
The presentation will conclude with a Q&A so participants can have their most pressing application questions answered.
