When a crystalline substance – such as an active pharmaceutical ingredient or an excipient – comes into contact with water, various types of interactions are possible. For the design of a dehydration process, it is therefore important to know the thermal properties of the particular sample. Thermogravimetric analysis in combination with kinetic evaluation helps determine this data and significantly reduce the time to develop a suitable temperature program.
For the construction industry, the fire behavior of building materials, including flammability and flame spread of building components, are of major importance. With the TDP T4 fire testing device for roofs, NETZSCH TAURUS Instruments offers a new instrument to determine the behavior of roofs against external fire loads.
The new e-learning platform, NOA (NETZSCH Online Academy) offers you to advance your Knowledge in Thermal Analysis topics, without having to leave your desk. Take advantage of flexible online learning, fully adapted to your training needs.
In the field of Thermal Analysis, coupling is typically used to characterize the chemical components of the gases released during heating, an approach called Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA). Learn how to gain a deeper insight about the type and composition of your materials by means of EGA.
For safety reasons, it is very important to know the behavior of supposedly non-combustible materials under fire conditions: What happens with the building material? How durable are the building constructions? We show how to use the Kinetics Neo software to predict the material behavior under fire conditions.
The NETZSCH Kinetics Neo software can not only be used for the analysis of temperature-dependent processes using thermal analysis data. It is now also possible to simulate rheological properties during curing based on the measured data from our Kinexus rotational rheometer. Learn more about the kinetic analysis of the curing behavior of a 2-Part epoxy adhesive.
If the extraordinary events of 2020 have taught us anything, it is that collaboration and teamwork are the best foundation for success. That is why we, NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing, and the NETZSCH Group, are pleased to be stepping up our cooperation with Malvern Panalytical.

Additive Manufacturing (AM) encompasses a variety of technologies suitable for producing components from liquid, solid or powder feedstocks. Selective Laser Melting (SLM), a powder-bed fusion process, has become a commonly used AM process for rapid prototyping and component manufacturing using metals, alloys and, to a lesser extent, ceramics. Learn more about SLM, suitable materials and how to optimize input parameters for improved product quality using Thermal Analysis.
Closed indoor spaces are a problem due to the spread of SARS-CoV-2 via aerosols, especially in winter, when cold temperatures limit the ability to air rooms. A body of experts investigates the extent to which particle concentrations in enclosed indoor spaces can decreased with the help of highly effective indoor filters. The smoke density test device from NETZSCH TAURUS Instrument was also used in this context. Read more in the article!
Fire testing regulations are crucial in keeping flammability and the spread of fire at a manageable level. The “Reaction to Fire Test” uses a Cone Calorimeter to assess the heat release rate and dynamic smoke production of a material sample. Learn how our new Cone Calorimeter allows for exact determination of the Heat Release Rate and gives an indication as to a material’s contribution to fire development and spread.
