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.
