Expansion of our test laboratory – New thermal analysis system

Our own thermal analysis system has been running in our test laboratory since April. The smart-sense device has a 700 °C furnace and can determine oxidation induction time (OIT) as well as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) of organic substances.

"

Oxidation induction time is an essential criterion for the quality of applied polymer plastics, such a polyethylene or polypropylene. External influences such as UV radiation (light), temperature, oxygen in the air, atmospheric stress (e.g. contamination) or chemical/biological media make organic substances age, which may restrict their usability considerably or even cause parts to fail. The most frequent cause for chemical aging (e.g. chain degradation) is oxidation. Therefore, oxidation induction time is an important criterion for use of, e.g., plastics as they are processed by us.

The thermal analysis system thereby completes our test laboratory. This gives us the same equipment as a full expert laboratory. Together with our three Level III Frosio inspectors, we therefore offer quality control and monitoring and, of course, expert work at the highest level. Contact us.
