BLACKS Composites SRL and NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing made the next milestone in its already proven Partnership: Improving the curing of a CFRP bike rim with a simultaneous drastic reduction of the cycle time during cross-linkage. The bike rim was processed through hand lay-up technology and a subsequent autoclave curing. Saving cycle time with a better curing is not possible? It is! Based on the data of a differential scanning calorimeter and the simulation software Kinetics Neo, the cycle time was reduced by 46% compared to the cure cycle suggested by the material data sheet. Additionally, a higher degree of cure could be achieved to meet the target curing and avoiding overheating effects of the product.
Lecture from the 2nd NORDIC CONFERENCE ON CERAMIC AND GLASS TECHNOLOGY Our Webcast contains a lecture from Alexander Frenzl at the Technical University of Denmark about optimization of sintering and debinding processes by thermo-kinetic simulation (KINETICS NEO). Alexander FrenzlAlexander Frenzl has been employed in the Development Department at NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing since 2005. In … Read moreDigital Transformation in the Ceramics Industry
Caffeine exists under 2 polymorphic forms (I and II). Compression of form I induces its transformation into form II, leading to changes in its properties. Heating with DSC ensures that caffeine is in the correct form.
Spray-dried a-lactose monohydrate is a matrix of amorphous lactose in which lactose monohydrate crystals are embedded. Humidity has no influence on the crystal but amorphous lactose is very hygroscopic: in presence of humidity, it will transform into the crystalline form. This has consequences on the tableting properties of the substance. Thermal Analysis gives you first Information about the water content of your lactose and the consequences for its compressing properties.
The database system for thermal analysis by NETZSCH, called Identify, has now (from Proteus® analysis version 8.0 or higher) already more than 2000 database entries available.
Furthermore, Identify can now be used with combined TGA+DSC, TGA-c-DTA® and STA measurements, which allows for material identification with greater certainty.
AutoEvaluation by NETZSCH is a very helpful tool for evaluation of thermoanalytical measurements. The entire measurement is evaluated by AutoEvaluation automatically and autonomously (not via pre-defined macro!) – with only one mouse click – and just within a second. AutoEvaluation is available for DSC, TGA and now also for STA measurements. Furthermore, the adaptability of AutoEvaluation is adressed.
Digitization is the biggest change in the way we do business today. Enterprises that successfully adjust to this change can improve productivity
….then we cordially invite you to the 7th SKT on Coupling Techniques between Thermal Analysis and Evolved Gas Analysis instruments.
Drug excipient compatibility ensure that the efficacy of the active ingredient is not affected by the excipients. You get first information about compatibility and interaction of components with thermal analysis methods as DSC or TG.
Thermal stability of materials measured fast and easy with a thermobalance coupled to a FT-IR System. Here, this method is applied to determine the thermal stability of Eudragit® L100-55.
