Do you need a plastic part or a film with very specific properties – such as temperature stability coupled with dimensional stability accurate to a hundredth of a millimeter and UV resistance – otherwise it cannot be used for its intended purpose? But how can you check whether all requirements have been met and, in addition, how can failures be analyzed?
The heat flow meter (HFM) method is mainly used to test thermal conductivity and thermal resistance of insulation samples. It is not an absolute method, therefore, the heat flow meter output needs to be calibrated with a standard material. NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH has recently qualified its own factory standard for calibration and validation of heat flow meter (HFM) instruments, the NETZSCH EPS standard.
Identify is the most comprehensive database system in Thermal Analysis! In a nutshell, it can be used for the recognition and comparison of measurement curves. Signals of types DSC, TGA, DIL/TMA and cp are supported, curves can be found and overlaid easily. This article highlights the great database contents of Identify (status 11/2019): The database already contains about 2300 database entries!
With our webinars, you can expand your knowledge about thermal analysis topics free of charge. Participation is free of charge and without obligation.
During the webinars you will have the opportunity to ask questions to our specialists.
