Thermomechanical Analysis

Applications for Thermomechanical Analysis Testing:

  • Measurement of Dimensional Change Coefficient of Linear Thermal Expansion
  • Multi-layer Film Analysis
  • Determination of Material Anisotropy
  • Determination of Softening Temperatures
  • Determination of Glass Transition Temperature
  • Difficult to measure Glass Transition Temperatures
