Webinar : Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is widely used together with DSC, TMA, and DMA. TGA measures the mass of a sample while the sample is heated or cooled in a defined atmosphere. The main use of TGA is to characterize materials with regard to their composition.
A TGA/DSC instrument even allows you measure thermal events that do not produce a mass change such as melting, glass transitions, or other solid-solid transitions.
In this Webinar, we will discuss the basic principles of TGA/DSC and present some interesting applications.
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is used to characterize physical and chemical material properties as a function of temperature in a precisely controlled atmosphere. The method provides valuable information for quality control, development, and research.
Application areas include thermoplastics, elastomers, thermosets, metals and ceramics as well as a wide range of analyses in the chemical, building, food and pharmaceutical industries.
A TGA/DSC instrument is even more versatile because it combines a TGA with a DSC. The system can be coupled on-line to a mass spectrometer or FTIR spectrometer to identify the nature of evolved gaseous products.
Combined with a humidity generator it can also be use to study sorption processes.
In this Webinar, we will discuss the basic principles of TGA and present some interesting application examples.
The Webinar covers the following topics:
- Principles of TGA
- TGA/DSC 1
- Measurement possibilities
- Why use TGA?
