Event description

Description

Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) is a useful technique for characterizing the mechanical properties of all kinds of materials, particularly polymers or polymer-based products such as thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers, adhesives, paints and coatings, films and fibers, as well as composites.

DMA can provide quantitative and qualitative data regarding:

  • Viscoelastic moduli and damping
  • Material structure and morphology
  • Relaxation behavior (Primary, Secondary)
  • Influence of fillers and fibers in polymers
  • Crystallization/melting processes
  • Curing behavior

Detailed information about these properties is crucial for materials development, as well as for the design of production processes.

The intention of this seminar is to provide participants from academia and industry an overview of how this technique can be used to gain a better understanding of the viscoelastic and thermal properties of their materials. The theoretical basis of DMA measurements will be covered, along with the test methods and the information gained from them. Various applications of DMA for plastics, rubbers and composites will also be discussed.

The seminar also gives participants hands-on experience with a radically new, truly easy-to-use DMA instrument, which makes day-to-day operation as smooth as it can be.
