Metals & Alloys

Melting, crystallization, glass transition, secondary phase transition, and specific heat are important chemical properties for metals and alloys that are measured with the DSC or STA. Besides these, the influence of corrosion, oxidation or reduction as well as magnetic transitions and thermostability can also be determined.

With dilatometers, the coefficient of thermal expansion can be precisely measured; DMA determines practice-relevant values for the modulus of elasticity and the damping behavior of composites.

With LFA, the temperature and thermal conductivity of metals and their melts can also be investigated.
