Why life is better with NETZSCH: We are proud to present our new imagevideo.
Learn, how the Department of Polymer Materials at the University of Bayreuth uses the thermobalance TG 209 F1 Libra® in conjunction with Kinetics Neo for the prediction of the aging behavior of plastics.
Thermogravimetry could always be used universally and therefore did not exclude any material. Besides high temperature applications, NETZSCH also wanted to occur in other industries, including organic chemistry, pharmacy, medical technology, biotechnology, the food industry and, last but not least, the all-important plastics industry. So, the low-temperature thermobalance was born.
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is a method of thermal analysis employed for measuring mass changes as a function of temperature or time. Jürgen Zöller, our long-time sales representative, would like to take you back in time and walk you through the history of TGA development.
Who has the oldest STA still in use? The winner is our long-standing customer, the Fraunhofer-Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden, Germany.
Fruit gummies are delicious and taste good throughout the year, be it in summer or winter, in the desert at 50°C or at the North Pole at -40°C. The goodies seem to exhibit a broad spectrum of elastic properties, varying between soft and hard and are strongly influenced by temperature. Dynamic-mechanical analysis is employed for the characterization of visco-elastic properties.
In our latest application note, the quantification of the moisture absorption for the mouth-nose protection is investigated as a function of the material used and following the recommended wearing time for half masks in accordance with German statutory accident insurance.
In the past two weeks, you have learned a lot about the development and history of our coupling systems. Today, among other things, we show you, what is supposed to be the largest NETZSCH laboratory, but is not a NETZSCH company. 🙂 Also learn, how coupling systems have evolved until today and what makes them unique.
Combination with an FT-IR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer) has become an absolute must, especially in the polymer-producing, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing has been collaborating with the well-known producer of spectrometers, Bruker Optics, since 1993.
NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH consists of over half a century of development experience in coupling technology. In the month of March, find out in a historical summary how it all began, which systems were used then and which are used today, and read exciting contributions from our long-standing customers and partners.
