New Webinar Highlights Using DMA to Measure Viscoelastic Mechanical Properties

Share Article

Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) is used to measure the mechanical properties of viscoelastic materials under stress. A free webinar from METTLER TOLEDO will explore how robust DMA instrumentation can quickly and reliably determine critical properties to ensure materials perform as expected in context.

DMA provides quantitative and qualitative information on the viscoeleastic behavior of a wide range of materials.
DMA can be used to determine both Young’s and shear modulus values and measure relaxation effects that often cannot be measured with differential scanning calorimetry.

METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present a new live webinar entitled Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) on Thursday, March 30th, 2017. The English-language presentation, offered at three times to allow participation from around the globe, will cover DMA basics. It will also provide application examples where DMA has been used to determine the mechanical properties of viscoelastic materials as a function of temperature, frequency and amplitude.

DMA is a well-established thermal analysis technique. It can be used to determine both Young’s and shear modulus values and measure relaxation effects that often cannot be measured with differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). DMA is also used to measure damping characteristics, viscoelastic behavior, glass transition temperature and polymer structure/morphology for a wide range of materials including thermoplastics, composites and metals. Modulus values and glass transition temperature are particularly important when designing products that can be used safely for many years.

The presentation will conclude with a Q&A so attendees can have their most pressing application questions answered by METTLER TOLEDO experts.
