Dynamic Mechanical Analyses (DMA)
Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) for plastics and polymers for quality assessment or product development.
DMA identifies transition regions in plastics, such as the glass transition, and may be used for quality control or product development. DMA can easily recognize small transition regions that are beyond the resolution of DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry).
Dynamic mechanical testing supports:
- Polymer Research:
The DMA technique is a very sensitive tool for generating data that can help define the mechanical properties of a polymer in order to support product development, for example in the automotive industry.
- Polymer Quality Control:
Alpha and beta transitions in the Tan Delta curve can be used to compare production against standards.
Intertek DMA test experts support clients by finding the right approach for specific applications and areas of interest. Intertek offers DMA with various modes of oscillation including 3-point bend; dual cantiliver; single cantilever; film tension; and torsion.
