NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing has aspired to comprehensively analyze the thermal properties of the most varied of materials with powerful analytical instruments. Select the appropriate testing method for your polymers and other organic materials from among our instrument series 200. Browse our broad instrument series 400 spectrum to find solutions for your metals and alloys, ceramics, glass, and building materials as well as other inorganic materials. We will provide you with detailed counsel in choosing an instrument for your special application.
Our analytical instruments serve to determine characteristic thermal effects and materials data: e.g. melting/crystallization of thermoplastics, glass transitions, thermal stability, composition of rubber mixtures, curing behavior of thermosetting materials, and coefficient of elasticity values of anisotropic composites.
The melting and crystallization behavior of pharmaceutical active ingredients and auxiliary substances, the glass transition of treacles, the oxidation behavior of lubricants or the curing behavior of paints and adhesives are thermal effects here exemplified.
Knowing the thermal extension coefficient for the sintering of technical ceramics, phase transitions and specific heat, modified glass or the precise thermal conductivity values of inorganic building materials is of high practical importance.
Thermoanalytical and thermophysical property methods allow for comprehensive characterization of building materials. Knowledge about such aspects as composition, mass loss, binder burnout, thermal expansion, sintering, softening point and thermal conductivity is critical in the development of new materials and helps to ensure that final products can meet the demands being placed upon them.
Specific heat, extension coefficient, melting and solidification reactions and characteristic thermal effects also under corrosive conditions may possibly be analytical goals for your applications.
Here you will find application examples for the thermal characterization of minerals, inorganic chemicals, and other inorganic, non-metallic compounds and elements.
Thermal insulation materials are specifically designed to reduce the heat flow by limiting heat conduction, convection and radiation. During development and quality control, the extent to which thermal insulation materials fulfill their performance expectations is continuously scrutinized. NETZSCH offers a broad range of instruments for the characterization of thermal conductivity and other properties of insulating materials.
Thermoelectricity refers to a class of phenomena in which a temperature difference creates an electric potential or an electric potential creates a temperature difference. Various metals and semiconductors are generally employed in these applications. NETZSCH offers comprehensive tools for material optimization and characterization in this area.
State-of-the-art adhesives and sealants are of central importance in the development of new and innovative products for many key industries today. Using various thermal analysis methods, it is possible to investigate and kinetically analyze polymers and additives as well as the curing behavior of reactive adhesives.
Demand for new batteries with longer life cycle, higher cell capacity, safer use, extended operating temperature and lower cost drives research on new materials, cells and battery stacks. NETZSCH offers you the broadest range of solutions from thermal analysis, thermo physical, calorimetry and consulting.
The solar energy demand has grown at about 30% per annum over the past 15 years. To meet the growing demand, get products to market faster, and provide critical performance data to support competitive differentiation, research emphasis will be on the efficiency of PV systems, their lifetime and costs. This will spur new developments in material use and consumption, device design, and production technologies, and will drive the development of new concepts for increasing overall efficiency.
