Material Characterization


Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measures enthalpy changes in samples due to changes in their physical and chemical properties as a function of temperature or time.


The Flash DSC 1 revolutionizes rapid-scanning DSC. The instrument can analyze reorganization processes that were previously impossible to measure.


For material testing, process development or quality control there is often no alternative to DSC measurements under pressure.


Thermogravimetry (TGA) is a technique that measures the change in weight of a sample as it is heated, cooled or held at constant temperature.

Thanks to its modular design, the TGA/DSC is the ideal instrument for manual or automated operation in production and quality assurance through to research and development.

Thermomechanical analysis (TMA) is used to measure the dimensional changes of a material as a function of temperature.


Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) is used to measure the mechanical and viscoelastic properties of materials as a function of temperature, time and frequency.

The DMA/SDTA861e sets new standards in the market. In comparison with conventional DMA instruments it offers new and unique performance benefits: A frequency range up to 1000 Hz for material behav...
