Features & Benefits
Every instrument comes with a commitment to quality backed by the industry’s ONLY five-year furnace warranty for peace of mind.
With the ever-increasing demands for higher performing materials to meet the needs of challenging applications, understanding how a material reacts to its environment is more important than ever. Meeting and exceeding industry standards* for testing, the Discovery TMA 450 provides information about the material’s coefficient of linear thermal expansion (CTE), shrinkage, softening, glass transition temperatures, and much more. The advanced options can be used to obtain viscoelastic properties such as the material’s stiffness (Modulus), damping properties (tan delta), creep and stress relaxation. The TMA 450 is particularly useful for measuring these material properties locally, especially in manufactured components or assemblies where compatibility of materials is paramount.
