TGA Polymer Testing

At Applied Technical Services, we offer Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) testing in our chemistry labs. TGA is a testing technique used to determine the stability of the material and measure any difference in weight due to temperature changes. The weight changes in materials occur due to decomposition and oxidation reactions which cause physical changes such as sublimation, vaporization, and desorption in materials. TGA helps understand how the material will hold up after certain temperature conditions. TGA plays a significant role in designing materials to ensure that those materials don’t encounter unexpected errors.

TGA consists of a sample pan supported by a precision balance which is then heated or cooled during the experiment. This technique tells the stability of material while being weighted under extreme temperatures. TGA can also tell if a material has lost or gained weight. The results of a TGA come in graph form that shows percentage loss and how much mass will be lost. During the process, chemical reactions such as combustion occur, which involve mass loss or gain.

The following are the instruments that are used in our labs by our experts:
