Application Note

Compositional Analysis of Tire Elastomers using AutoStepwise TGA

High performance TGA instruments


The multi-component nature of elastomers requires exacting analytical procedures, which can be used to provide both quality assurance as well as R&D information to manufacturers and users of the elastomeric products. Thermal analysis, and in particular thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), provides valuable information regarding the composition of elastomers. This application note discusses a variety of high performance TGA instruments that PerkinElmer offers to cover a wide range of applications and needs.
