Stress Engineering Services provides Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA) of metallic and non-metallic coupons to acquire properties related to the coefficient of thermal expansion. Characterization of polymers, elastomers, adhesives, composites, ceramics, glasses and metallic substrates is possible with this analytical characterization instrument.
Typical Applications for the TMA include:
TMA is a valuable test method for failure analysis, application development, material development, computational analysis, material characterization and competitive analysis.
