Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer DMA


TA Instruments
Model: RSA-G2 Dynamic Mechanical analyzer DMA
RSA-G2 Dynamic Mechanical analyzer DMA (TA Instruments) measures the mechanical properties resulting from changes in five experimental variables: temperature, time, frequency, force, and strain. The deformation can be applied sinusoidally, in a constant (or step fashion), or under a fixed rate. The DMA uses samples that can be in bulk solid, film, fiber, gel, or viscous liquid form. Interchangeable clamps are employed to allow you to measure many properties, including: modulus, damping, creep, stress relaxation, glass transitions, and softening points. The unit is fitted with liquid nitrogen cooling giving an effective test temperature of -150 to 600oC.
