Thermal analysis

Louise Smyth

Thermal analysis measures a material’s physical and chemical properties as a function of temperature.

A free webinar from Mettler Toledo will explore how thermal analysis quickly and cost-effectively offers insight into materials behaviour to help with research and development, as well as quality control.

All About Thermal Analysis will take place on Thursday, September 28th, 2017.

The English-language presentation, offered three times to allow participation from around the globe, will showcase thermal analysis as a useful technique for characterising a wide range of materials to gain insight into their behaviour.

Thermal analysis measures the physical and/or chemical properties of a sample as a function of temperature or time when the sample is heated, cooled, or held at a constant temperature.

Properties such as heat capacity, expansion coefficient, or stiffness can be determined. Melting, glass transition temperatures, and thermal stability are also easily ascertained.

This type of characterisation helps provide insight into the behaviour of materials to solve problems and ensure safety to support quality control and research and development. The webinar will explore representative thermal-analysis applications in different industries.

Thermal analysis techniques to be covered are:

* Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

* Thermogravimetry (TGA)

* Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)

* Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)

* Thermo-optical Analysis (TOA)

The presentation will conclude with a Q&A session so participants can have their most pressing application questions answered by Mettler Toledo experts.
