Thermal analysis methods measure physical, mechanical, chemical, and thermodynamic changes taking place under differing temperatures and loads, and can pinpoint when and at what temperature significant changes occur. Element offers highly reliable thermal analysis services, including thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and thermomechanical analysis (TMA).

What is the Thermal Analysis Method?

Thermal analysis helps determine if materials are appropriate for the intended application or use. By using a model of temperature over time, these methods provide accurate data about glass transition temperature (Tg), coefficient of linear thermal expansion (CTE), specific heat, melting temperature, phase transitions, and more. 

Thermal analysis methods are also useful for identifying unknown materials, answering questions about the molecular structures of crystalline and amorphous polymers, and aiding in new composite materials research and development.
