Polymer Analysis Using the New Multi Sample Discovery X3 DSC

  Overview Polymeric materials, both thermoplastics and thermosets, have long been studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Cure properties, crystallization behavior, and glass transition temperatures are just a few of the material characteristics investigated by this versatile thermal technique. In many instances, the comparison of these material properties from samples that have a different production…

Thermal, Rheological and Mechanical Characterizations of Thermosets

  Overview Thermosetting materials, such as epoxy, have been widely applied in many areas including automotive, aerospace and electronics industries in the form of surface coating, structural adhesives, advanced composites and packaging materials. These kind of materials pose high mechanical strength, high temperature stability and good solvent resistance. Unlike thermoplastic polymers, the process of thermosets…

Connecting Polymer Processing and Product Performance through Rheology & DMA on the New DHR

  Overview The viscoelastic properties of polymers play a critical role in the different stages of polymer processing operations, whether it is melting and extrusion or the performance of the final product. On most polymer data sheets, these properties are presented in the form of a melt flow index. However, this simplistic approach is inherently…
