Thermomechanical Test

TMA Analysis Device

The TMA device is used for the determination of thermomechanical properties of material as a function of time or sample temperature. This technique is also used for the determination of linear expansion coefficient of the materials, expansion/contraction curves, viscoelastic properties, creep modulus, penetration amounts, glass transition and softening point temperatures.

TMA Analysis Results
