Polymer blends offer significant advantages during their service life. However, they make recycling at the end of life difficult. One of the most fundamental problems is the identification of the material as a blend as well as its composition to ensure it is sorted properly and can be reused if possible. Read how to TGA and FT-IR help with the identification and join our webinar series on TG-FT-IR!
We are excited to share the news that NETZSCH Instruments NA is hosting the 35th International Thermal Conductivity Conference (ITCC) and the 23rd International Thermal Expansion Symposium (ITES) in September 2021. Learn more!
Thermal Analysis provides powerful analytical methods for research, development and quality control of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients and formulations.

NETZSCH North America Commercial Testing Laboratory has set up a series of live demos based on questions we frequently hear in the field, at conferences and exhibitions about how our instruments work and the best measurements can be made. These demos are the short and sweet! Read more about the series and register for the first episode on 30 June 2020!
The University of Queensland, in collaboration with the Non-Conforming Building Products (NCBP) Audit Taskforce in Queensland, Australia, have proposed a framework to provide a robust methodology to assess the fire hazard of cladding materials in existing buildings based on a thorough understanding of the relevant fire phenomena. Thermogravimetric Analysis enhances the robustness of the framework. Read here how the method is applied to evaluate the risk of external fire spread on buildings.
Alucent Biomedical Inc. is a biomedical company dedicated to developing its breakthrough Natural Vascular Scaffolding (NVS) technology for the treatment of vascular disease. Multiple sample preparation techniques were evaluated to investigate a method that could alleviate signal artifacts attributed to sample movement during heating. Learn how the sample is prepared to achieve accurate and reproducible thermograms for biological tissue.
Whether DSC, TGA, STA or complex coupling with gas analysis, our virtual laboratory visits offer our customers the opportunity to get to know all instruments and our software live and in detail.
In the previous articles, focusing on thermal analysis under humidity, we have seen that thermogravimetric analysis and dynamic mechanical analysis help determine the influence of water on a material or substance. Thermomechanical analysis complements the analysis under humidity.
Water is one of the major parts influencing our climate. Our atmosphere is filled with water. We may not always be able to see it, but it interacts with us and our materials. Learn how thermal analysis helps identify water absorption and determine water content.
