Ceramics & Glass

Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (STA) is ideal for investigating issues such as the glass transition of modified glass, binder burnout, dehydration of ceramic materials or decomposition behavior of inorganic building materials, also with evolved gas analysis (EGA).

The expansion and shrinkage behavior of technical ceramics during sintering can be measured with dilatometry.

LFA, HFM and TCT are versatile methods for the precise determination of thermal conductivity.

For refractories, important mechanical values such as bending strength at elevated temperatures, softening under load, and creep in compression can be measured.
