Mechanical Analysis (DMA & TMA)

Accurately characterize the modulus, compliance, damping and other bulk properties of materials using our Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) solutions. Our state-of-the art instrumentation measures changes in rheological behavior under dynamic conditions as a function of temperature, time, frequency, stress, atmosphere, or a combination of these parameters. Applications and measurements include:

  • Stress-strain
  • Creep recovery
  • Thermomechanical
  • Moisture induced phase transitions
  • Moisture sensitive materials like paper, natural fibers, and food products
  • Swelling, shrinking and stiffness changes as humidity changes
  • Plasticizing and Tg effects as seen in nylon and polyurethanes
