Transition Temperature by DMA


Test ID  
R-026

   
Description  
A dynamic mechanical analyzer is used. A test specimen in the form of a circular disk or pellets is sandwiched between parallel plates, at temperature. The top plate is oscillated at 100 rad/s while the sample is cooled. The cross-over temperature of the G and G curves is determined.    
Data  
The G'-G" crossover temperature is reported.  
Replicates (# of times this test is repeated)  
1  
Samples  
2 - plate rheology discs [details]

   

Application
 
This is a precise measure of the temperature where the material begins to solidify. It may be used to characterize the no-flow temperature of a material.
