Thermal Analysis

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