Differential Scanning Calorimeter

  • Modulated Differential Scanning Calorimeter TA-Q-100
  • Heat of fusion, heat of crystallization and glass transition of polymers
  • Specific heat of polymers
  • Heat of curing of thermosetting polymers
  • Kinetic of reaction
  • Temperature range -80 to 400°C
  • Gas switching capability




 Thermogravimetric Analyser


  • Thermogravimetric Analysis TA-Q-50
  • The new Q50 is a cost effective, easy-to-use, general-purpose thermogravimetric analyzer
  • In sensitivity and low baseline drift, it offers performance superior to most research grade models over the temperature range from ambient to 1,000°C.
  • The Q50, especially when equipped with mass flow controllers, is ideal for laboratories that need a high quality TGA for standard applications.



Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analyzer (DMTA-IV)


  • Rheometric Scientific DMTA-IV
  • Film, foam, solid, gel, composite
  • 6 different fixtures: single cantilever, dual cantilever, three point bending, compression, tension and shear sandwich
  • Temperature range from –150°C to 400°C
  • 5 decades range of frequency
  • Dynamic properties of polymer such as linear viscoelastic region, elastic (E’) and viscous (E”) modulus and tan d as a function of frequency, time and amplitude
  • Glass transition of solid polymer, polymer blend, filled polymer or rubber
  • Time Temperature Superposition
  • Creep and recovery
  • Strain Rate Test

Rheometric Solid Analyzer  RSA-2



UV Curing on DSC




  • UV/LED thin film particle coating
