Why NETZSCH Heat Flow Meters Support Reduction of C02 Emissions

NETZSCH Thermal Conductivity HFM Eco Line

Governments set strict building insulation regulations in place to reduce carbon emissions. Consequently, a lot of effort goes into the engineering of materials with very low thermal conductivity to supply the market with even better thermal insulation materials. Learn how the NETZSCH HFM 446 Lambda Eco-Line allows accurate and fast determination of thermal conductivity and thermal resistance!

Smart Thermal Analysis: Measurements Wanted?

Imagine the typical situation in everyday laboratory work: A new sample has to be analyzed, but what are the suitable measurement conditions such as temperature program, sample mass or the right crucible? And what measurement results can be expected? Perhaps such kind of sample was already measured by you in the past ‒ or maybe by NETZSCH. Wouldn’t it help a lot to simply search in a database for thermal analysis? Identify, which is a part of the Proteus® analysis software, is the solution!

Assessing Fire Hazard of Cladding Materials in Existing Buildings

Fire cladding materials testing

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.

Thermal Conductivity of Insulating Glass Windows and Skylights

Building regulations in various countries require minimum thermal conductivity (U-values) for different parts of a new building. This refers to anything from external walls, floors, roofs, windows and doors. Guarded Hot Plates (GHPs) determine these important values. Read here how!
