Thermal Properties

The properties and performance of all polymeric materials change significantly with temperature. Understanding the transitional temperatures is a major consideration for design engineers when selecting a polymer grade.

Within our ISO 17025 laboratories, we offer a wide range of thermal testing to suit your requirements. Our experts will discuss and understand your objectives before advising on the most on appropriate methodology.

We are always happy to talk to you about the suitability of particular tests, so please make contact with the Smithers Rapra expert shown if you have questions about the test itself or the support you need for your particular.

Thermal testing techniques include:

  • TGA - Thermogravimetric Analysis
  • DSC – Differential Scanning Calorimeter
  • DMA – Dynamic Mechanical Analysis
  • DMTA – Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis
  • Rheology
  • Heat Deflection Temperature
