TGA Moisture Analysis
Applied Technical Services conducts TGA moisture analysis services to provide clients with a comprehensive understanding of how their products are impacted by moderate to severe temperature changes.

TGA Moisture Analysis

TGA moisture analysis, also commonly referred to as thermogravimetric analysis or thermogravimetric moisture analysis, is a procedure that helps identify properties of a material, including the subject’s moisture, the amount of weight that is lost during thermal changes, and endothermic and exothermic properties. Due to the versatility of TGA analysis, it is a commonly preferred testing method for the analysis of several different types of materials, including but not limited to:
How TGA Moisture Analysis Works
Applied Technical Services performs thermogravimetric analysis to provide our clients with a comprehensive understanding of how a product or material changes in mass when exposed to varying levels of temperature over different lengths of time. First, samples are heated at a specific temperature change rate to 1000°C in either nitrogen or air. All physical changes are then calculated and documented, identifying these changes as a result of changes in moisture, compounds, carbon black, polymer degradation, and ash content. Thermograms, such as the one seen below, are used to display properties and changes in the tested material, giving a precise temperature at which changes have occurred. TGA moisture analysis is a component of many different ISO and ASTM testing standards, including ISO 11358 and ASTM E1131.
