RSA-G2 Solids Analyzer

The new RSA-G2 is the most advanced platform for mechanical analysis of solids. The separate motor and transducer technology of the RSA-G2 insures the purest mechanical data through independent control of deformation and measurement of stress. It is capable of performing the most accurate DMA measurements as well as many additional experiments including creep and recovery, stress relaxation, stress ramps, strain rate ramps, iso-strain, iso-force, fatigue, multi-wave, arbitrary waveform, and dielectric thermal analysis.


The VTI-SA+ Vapor Sorption Analyzer is a continuous vapor flow sorption instrument for obtaining precision water and organic vapor isotherms at temperatures ranging from 5°C to 150°C at ambient pressure. The VTI-SA+. Analyzer embodies the features of VTI’s original SGA design with almost two decades of field-proven performance: the isothermal aluminum block construction, the three isolated thermal zones and chilled-mirror dew point analyzer for primary humidity measurements… all to provide excellent temperature and RH stability.

Extensional Rheology in Polymer Processing

Extensional Rheology in Polymer Processing Extensional flows dominate many polymer processes, including blow molding, film blowing, fiber spinning, thermoforming and many others. The rheology of polymeric materials under extensional flows can differ significantly from shear flows and it is important to understand this in order to optimize both materials and processes. In this webinar, we…

An Introduction to Tribo-Rheometry: Quantifying Friction

An Introduction to Tribo-Rheometry: Quantifying Friction Tribology complements rheology, providing information on solid-solid interactions that adds insight to the bulk fluid measurements of rheology. Tribology is especially concerned with quantifying the coefficient of friction as a function of sliding speed and load force, under dry or lubricated conditions. This provides useful information about lubrication, wear,…

Morphology Of Complex Nanoparticle Mixtures

Morphology Of Complex Nanoparticle Mixtures The performance of new materials and devices depend heavily on morphological considerations: degree of crystallinity, conformation of amorphous species, and relative organization of one species with respect to another, characteristics which can be determined by thermal analysis. These considerations are important for functional materials such as photovoltaics and MEMS devices,…
