|On Demand Webinar|| Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA) |
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 allows you to determine expansion coefficients and softening temperatures. It can measure relaxation effects that are often not detected by DSC.
In this Webinar, we will discuss the basic principles of TMA and present some interesting applications.

The specific heat capacity (cp) is an important, temperature-dependent material property and is often specified in material data sheets. It can be conveniently and reliably measured by DSC. The specific heat capacity is a key property for improving technical processes such as injection molding, spray drying or crystallization as well as for the safety analysis of chemical processes and the design of chemical reactors. In this Webinar, we will discuss six different methods for determining the specific heat capacity and present some interesting applications.
|On Demand Webinar|| Thermal Analysis of Thermoplastics |
Thermoplastic materials are widely used in many industries because of their unique properties, low weight, attractive price, and recycling possibilities. The four main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA are ideal for characterizing such materials. The most important advantage is that properties can be measured as function of temperature or time over a wide temperature range, from –150 to 1600 °C.
In this Webinar, we will show how thermal analysis is used to analyze thermoplastic materials and will present some typical examples of samples measured by DSC, TGA, TMA, or DMA.
|On Demand Webinar|| High-pressure DSC |
Increased pressure influences all physical changes and chemical reactions in which a change in volume occurs. For material testing, process development, and quality control there is often no alternative to DSC measurements under pressure. High-pressure DSC allows you to measure samples under defined atmospheres at up to 10 MPa as a function of temperature or time. Higher temperature and pressure accelerates reactions and shortens the analysis time. In this Webinar, we will discuss the basic principles of high-pressure DSC and present some interesting applications.
|On Demand Webinar|| Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) |
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is widely used together with DSC, TMA, and DMA. TGA measures the mass of a sample while the sample is heated or cooled in a defined atmosphere. The main use of TGA is to characterize materials with regard to their composition.
A TGA/DSC instrument even allows you measure thermal events that do not produce a mass change such as melting, glass transitions, or other solid-solid transitions.
