Innovation application: Testing Services Using Thermal Analysis

Title Testing Services Using Thermal Analysis
Abstract

Thermal analysis is used by chemists to determine thermal stabilities, decomposition temperatures, proximate analysis (volatiles and solid residue), melting/crystallization behavior, glass transition temperatures. We offer analysis of solid, liquid, polymer samples, and inorganic matter.

Keywords thermal analysis, material testing services

Description of the technology

There is termogravimetric analyzer of Perkin Elmer STA 6000 (see Figure) available for recording thermal analysis. The samples were heated from 30 to 1000 °C with heating rate from 1 to 100 °C/min in a pure nitrogen flow of 20 ml/min. The client will receive the thermogram as hard copy or pdf. We can provide identification of thermogram

Advantages

Fast method to evaluate the thermal properties of the test sample.

Technology Readiness Level Actual system proven in operational environment
Partnership offer • Service contracts for recording thermal analysis.
