It’s time to change tires. But is it really necessary to replace summer tires with winter tires every six months? Isn’t it better to do without the two and use all-season tires instead? We will answer that question for you.
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.
AutoEvaluation is an intelligent software algorithm and part of the NETZSCH Proteus® software, which automatically and autonomously evaluates thermo-analytical measurement curves. It has already been introduced and successfully applied for Differential Scanning Calorimetry and Thermogravimetric Analysis and is also available for dL signals as generated by dilatometers (DIL) and thermomechanical analyzers (TMA). As an improvement, the mean CTE (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion) values are evaluated additionally before and after the glass transition.
The required mechanical and dielectric property profile of elastomeric materials is achieved by selecting the suitable polymer, filler and additives for the application field. During their service life, elastomeric materials in tire, sealing and automotive applications undergo constant change. Read more about the cost-effective way to monitor the mechanical properties of the elastomeric materials during application.
The DMA GABO EPLEXOR® series enables the dynamic mechanical (or static) characterization of a wide range of different materials. By adding one of the two available autosampling systems (ASC – Automatic Sample Changer or MPAS – Multi-Purpose Automatic Sample Changer), any DMA GABO EPLEXOR® can be converted to a fully automatic testing system.

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!
Rubber is a living material. During mechanical loading, rubber changes its mechanical behavior due to inner structural changes on the molecular scale. Learn in the video how the dynamic mechanical and dielectric properties of carbon black-filled rubber compounds can be analyzed.
Rheology and asphalt specialist John Casola reports on the events of day one of the 2020 AMAP meeting
As a leading international platform, Tire Technology Expo 2020 featured the latest product launches and innovations from national and international exhibitors and a number of interesting presentations. Quality assurance and environmental compatibility of raw materials, intermediates and end products remain essential in all phases of this process to reach the next milestone for sustainable growth.
Deciding whether to purchase either a viscometer or a rheometer is not always straightforward. This guide will take you through the differences and how a rheometer could be more suited for your needs.
