Before shipping samples to us, please contact email@example.com to provide the SDS and confirm the sample requirements. This will help to avoid unnecessary delays in sample processing.
Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) measures the amount and rate of change in the weight of a material as a function of temperature or time in a controlled atmosphere. Measurements are used primarily to determine the composition of materials and to predict their thermal stability at temperatures up to 1200°C. The technique can characterize materials that exhibit weight loss or gain due to decomposition, oxidation, or dehydration. The applications are included in our thermal analysis services:
- Thermal Stability of Materials
- Oxidative Stability of Materials
- Composition of Multi-component Systems
- Estimated Lifetime of a Product
- Decomposition Kinetics of Materials
- The Effect of Reactive or Corrosive Atmospheres on Materials
- Moisture and Volatiles Content of Materials
DSC is used to measure melting temperature, heat of fusion, latent heat of melting, reaction energy and temperature, glass transition temperature, crystalline phase transition temperature and energy, precipitation energy and temperature, denaturization temperatures, oxidation induction times, and specific heat or heat capacity. DSC measures the amount of energy absorbed or released by a sample when it is heated or cooled, providing quantitative and qualitative data on endothermic (heat absorption) and exothermic (heat evolution) processes. This technique can be used to determine the thermal properties of plastics, adhesives, sealants, metal alloys, pharmaceutical materials, waxes, foods, lubricants, oils, catalysts, fertilizers, shape-memory alloys, and intermetallic compound formation.
MSE Supplies is also a supplier of high quality crucibles for thermal analysis. Shop for:
- Only non-corrosive samples can be analyzed in this very sensitive instrument. And no organic or other materials containing F, Cl, Br.
- Temperature can range from -120°C to 725°C, though an inert atmosphere is required above 600°C.
- Pans of Al, Cu, Au, Pt, alumina, and graphite are available and need to be chosen to avoid reactions with samples.
- Atmospheres: nitrogen, air, oxygen, argon, controlled mixed gases.
- Sample size: from 0.5mg to 100mg.
