Thermal Test

Thermal analysis equipment available in our laboratory and analysis conducted with these equipment are stated below.

Differential Scanning Calorimeter Device (DSC) 

Differential scanning calorimeter in our laboratory enables working within a temperature range between -150°C and 600°C. This analysis is used to detect heat flow differences between the  sample and a reference sample. The amount of energy absorbed or released during the heating / cooling of the sample or keeping the sample at a constant temperature is measured in DSC analysis. If a temperature difference occurs between the sample and reference sample, the energy supplied to the sample is altered to equalize the temperature energy (power) amount. Thus, the amount of heat transfer during the phase change in the sample can be determined.

Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA)

The Thermogravimetric Analyzer is used to determine the thermal stability of the samples. The sample is heated in a suitable atmosphere and, increases and losses in sample masses are determined as a function of temperature. The temperatures where degradation has been initiated and completed, and maximum degradation temperatures can be determined.

Thermo Mechanical Analysis  (TMA)

Thermo Mechanical Analysis  device is used for determination of thermo mechanical properties of the sample as a function of time or sample temperature. Also, it is utilized to obtain the coefficient of linear expansion of materials. Expansion / contraction curves, viscoelastic properties, creep modulus, penetration amounts, glass transition and softening temperatures can be determined by using the TMA device.
