TMA Analysis

Applied Technical Services uses thermomechanical analysis to characterize the physical properties of polymeric materials. The information gained from TMA is helpful for application development, failure analysis, and material characterization and development.

What is TMA?

Thermomechanical analysis, or TMA, determines the thermal properties of polymers. TMA identifies a material’s physical properties when force is applied at specific temperatures and is commonly used to determine a material’s softening temperature and expansion behavior. There are several advantages of TMA, including:
