Lambda-Wert von Dämmstoffen: Der Hersteller trägt die Verantwortung für die qualifizierte technische Dokumentation.

Anzeige über den Browser: Lambda 90/90 Berechnung aus Basis von online-Daten aus der Qualitätssicherung.

Unser Ziel im Rahmen unsere Ideenfindung für Lösunginnovationen: Europäische Anforderungen für europäische Dämmstoffhersteller in einem ganzheitlichen Ansatz zu erfüllen. Die NETZSCH-Gerätebau-GmbH liefert neben den für die Qualitätssicherung von Dämmstoffen notwendigen Messgeräten und dem dazugehörigen Service im Bereich Wartung und Kalibrierung auch browserbasierte Datenmanagement-Lösungen zur standortübergreifenden, vernetzten Dokumentation von Prüfergebnissen und zur Verwaltung von Dokumenten. Dies ermöglicht Dämmstoffherstellern die problemlose Einhaltung der geforderten Pflichten. Alle geforderten Elemente der Dokumentation sind somit standortübergreifend ständig abrufbar.

Sub-ambient DMA Measurements up to -70°C without Using LN2

Many investigations in the field of polymers with lower stiffness require a measurement start below room temperature. As an alternative to existing solutions with Vortex tube and liquid nitrogen cooling, NETZSCH now offers the new compact AIC 80 intracooler for DMA measurements that works with chilled air. It reliably cools samples to -70°C without the use of liquid nitrogen.

How to use TGA for the quality control of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers

CFRP_TGA_quality control_netzsch

The determination of fiber volume fraction is crucial for the quality control of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRP) in order to ensure their favorable mechanical and physical properties for the use in aerospace, wind energy and automotive sectors. A new thermogravimetric testing method, published by Dominik Grund in the journal “Polymer Testing”, considers heating rate, analysis atmosphere and sample size to efficiently ensure high quality of the material. This editorial summarizes the steps for the use of TGA in the quality control of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers.

Good Stability Versus Good Tabletability: The Choice of Modification

Many pharmaceutical solids exhibit polymorphism, i.e., the ability of a substance to exist in different crystalline forms. The polymorphic form can have significant influence on pharmaceutical processing and can, for example, affect grinding, granulation and tabletability. A DSC measurement allows for the characterization of the present modification. Here, different modifications of paracetamol are distinguished by means of DSC.

How mechanical properties of polymers change with temperature

Professor Dr Tim. A. Osswald and Dr Tobias Pflock talk about the effect temperature has on the polymer’s properties. The room temperature modulus is often the only value given to describe the mechanical property of a polymer material. But temperature dependence of mechanical performance of polymer material significantly differs to that of other materials such as metals or ceramics and is vital information for many everyday applications of polymers.

How DSC Measurements help with Phase Diagrams – A Possibility for Determining the Composition of a NiAl Alloy

E. Post, J. Blumm

A phase diagram portrays the equilibrium conditions between the thermodynamically separated phases or it shows which phases are present in the material system at different temperatures, pressures and compositions. Thermoanalytical methods play an important role in establishing binary and ternary phase diagrams. They are based on the principle that, when a phase transition occurs, the physical, chemical and/or structural properties change.
