DMTA

ARDL’s capabilities for Dynamic Thermal Mechanical Analysis (DTMA) include characterizing materials by measuring torsion, compression and tensile. Generally the DTMA allows for higher sensitivity than DSC techniques in measuring glass transition, melting point and other transition temperatures. Our DTMA equipment also provides capabilities to measure properties using frequency sweeps and temperature sweeps.
