Thermal Analysis Services

NAT offers a wide range of tests in thermal analysis that include TGA and TGA-FT-IR, DSC, and mDSC:

  • temperature and heat of fusion, vaporization and crystallization
  • heat of reaction, including polymerization, oxidation and combustion
  • temperature and heat of decomposition (e.g., dehydration)
  • heat of solution, adsorption or desorption
  • specific heat, activation energy, polymer crystallinity, curing time
  • material purity, thermal and oxidative stability
  • reactivity and reaction rates
  • temperature and glass transition, softening, linear coefficient of expansion
