Join us as John Moylan, Composites Technical Director at Element, delivers a webinar discussing the methods used for measuring glass transition temperature. The live webinar will take place on July 1st at 10:00 am PDT / 1:00 pm EDT / 6:00 pm GMT.
Why should I attend?
John will provide an overview of measuring glass transition (Tg) temperature, why it is important for structural composites, various measurement techniques, and more. The presentation will include information on:
- What glass transition (Tg) is
- Methods used to measure Tg such as DSC, TMA, DMA, and mechanical testing
- Use of specific methods
- The effects of moisture on the material
