Evaluating Viscoelastic and Fatigue Response of Silica Filled ‘Green Tire’ and Conventional Carbon Black Filled Rubber

Overview Trends in tire development and manufacturing have shifted to high performance rubbers that not only offer better durability but higher performance and lower fuel consumption. Silica, as a filler material, is now replacing conventionally used carbon black due to its unique set of properties. This webinar will illustrate how High Force Dynamic Mechanical Analysis…

Unlock a New Dimension in your Battery Research Through Isothermal Microcalorimetry

  Overview In order to meet growing market demands for power storage, Lithium ion and new battery chemistries demand higher energy density, longer cycle life, calendar life, and better safety to a lower cost. Isothermal microcalorimetry is a highly sensitive, non-destructive and non-specific tool to characterize these critical performance criteria. Learn how this method provides:…

Novel 3D Printed Liquid Crystal Elastomers and the Characterization of Their Anisotropy, Rate-Depend

Overview Liquid-crystal elastomers (LCEs) uniquely combine molecular ordering with entropic elasticity. The result is a class of anisotropic elastomers with remarkable properties spanning stimuli responsive actuation to exceptional dissipation of mechanical energy. Our group has recently developed a range of photopolymerizable LCE resins and inks which we 3D print using direct ink writing (DIW) and…

Elucidating Thermodynamic Details of Biologic and Small Molecule Drugs using Microcalorimetry

Overview Researchers are working tirelessly to understand the basic chemical details of viral pathogenesis, viral protein structures, and identifying therapeutics to disrupt and prevent disease. There are different modes of therapies evolving that include small-molecule antiviral drugs, mRNA, and protein-based vaccines. Microcalorimetry is one powerful tool for the development and characterization of the mechanism of…
