From liquids to highly-filled thermosets to metals and ceramics – all such materials can be measured with the DMA 242 E Artemis. We even evaluate hair samples and the influence of hair care products.
Why is water a problem for a part made of thermoplastics? Textbooks describe that the water uptake for some types of polyamide (PA) is really high in both 50% relative humidity and in water. This alone would not be the problem, but the uptake of water leads to very different properties of materials. How can dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) help with this issue?
