Detail Information

  • The Humidity Generator and Controller is a powerful and flexible option, which delivers the capability to apply and accurately control relative humidity to the sample environment in the DMA 8000.
  • The standard furnace of the DMA 8000 is configured with a quartz window, which allows visual inspection of the sample and clamping system throughout the experiment without interrupting the temperature profile or other experimental conditions.
  • Our Material Pockets are a unique sample preparation tool specifically designed to work with the DMA 8000. These innovative pockets allow powdered or non-self supported materials, such as powdered drugs, gels, natural products like tea, coffee, herbs, etc. and low viscosity materials to be investigated by DMA.
Features and Benefits:
  • One of the most unique and useful features of the DMA 8000 is its rotating analysis head, which can be oriented through a full 180° for optimal analysis head configuration for virtually any test type and sample geometry.
  • The novel lightweight analytical train incorporated in the DMA 8000 has minimal compliance for enhanced performance.
  • In addition to operation in dynamic mode, the DMA 8000 permits operation in a "Constant force (TMA) mode" vs. time or temperature. Applications such as expansion coefficient, softening and penetration, or extension or contraction in tension geometry provide valuable data equivalent to many commercial stand-alone TMA instruments.
  • The DMA 8000 is using an ultra-efficient cooling system. The instrument can cool to - 190 ºC in 15 minutes using less than 1 liter of liquid nitrogen, providing industry-leading performance.
  • The DMA 8000 environmental fluid bath option has been designed as an integral part of the analyzer. The accessory allows true immersion studies on a sample while measuring the dynamic mechanical properties.

Effect of Radiation on Epoxy and FeCr Filled Epoxy Composites

The effects of radiation on polymeric materials is a topic of concern in a range of industries including the sterilization1, medical devices2, food preparation3, and the nuclear power industry4.

High Frequency DMA data passing through the Resonance Frequency of a Sample

All materials have a resonance frequency. Often this is of little concern as it is above the normal practical mechanical frequencies that the material will be exposed to. It can be important if the material is to be used in an environment where high frequency mechanical stress is applied, such as engine mounts in a car or some aeronautical applications.

Mechanical Properties of Films and Coatings

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) is a technique used to investigate the stiffness of materials as a function of temperature, humidity, dissolution media or frequency. A mechanical stress is applied to the sample and the resultant strain is measured by the instrument.

The Application of Mesh Material Pockets in DMA Analysis of Amorphous and Crystalline Lactose Powders

Lactose is a very important pharmaceutical excipient used in tablet and inhalation products. It is prone to forming amorphous regions on processing however; and; it can be problematical to characterize amorphic material in a sample. Differential Mechanical Analysis (DMA) with material pocket is a method which can be used to accurately determine very low levels of amorphous content in lactose (Royall 2005; Mahlin 2009); due to the high sensitivity of DMA to glass transitions. The material pocket facilitates the analysis of lactose in the powder form; resulting in a very powerful tool for the analysis of mixtures of crystalline and amorphous lactose.

Use of DSC, DMA and TG-GC/MS in the Study of Epoxy Materials

Traditionally approaches to studying the curing of epoxies concentrate on the thermo-chemical1 and thermo-rheological properties of the material. As changes in the glass transition temperature (Tg) correlate strongly with functional properties3 like mechanical strength, tribology, permeability, etc, studies on epoxies often rely on techniques like Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) and Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) to quantify it. DSC also allows one to characterize the degree of cure in a thermoset and to determine the kinetics of the cure4. DMA can characterize the rheology profile of the cure5 as well as the final modulus and Tg values after curing. In many cases, the greater sensitivity of the DMA to the presence of the Tg makes it the preferred method for epoxies studies.Traditionally approaches to studying the curing of epoxies concentrate on the thermo-chemical1 and thermo-rheological properties of the material.

Analysis on Data Collected by the DMA 8000 Using Time Temperature Superposition

Time-Temperature Superposition (TTS) analysis allows DMA data to be applied to data collected within the measuring range of the DMA 8000 (0.001 Hz to 600 Hz) to allow modelling of material behavior at much higher or lower frequencies, which may be more representative of “real world” applications. At the low frequency end of the frequency spectrum, “creep” measurements may be carried over many months or even years, however modelled data from DMA using TTS can give an indication of long-term behaviour in a very short time. Similarly, higher frequencies such as those which represent “impact”, typically in the kHz range, can be investigated quickly and easily using DMA in a way which allows meaningful comparisons between different sample treatments or modifications to be assessed.

White Paper - Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One Team Racing to the Championship With PerkinElmer

Laboratory testing and analysis was introduced into Formula 1 Motor Racing in the early 1990s. We are now arguably in the third phase of laboratory testing; the development of expert systems which allow us to fully understand the condition of the various parts in service and run the cars as close to the limit of performance without risking failure. Within the MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team something like 90% of the reliability testing is carried out either in computer simulation, laboratory testing and the Power Train Systems (PTS) Dynamometer.
