Thermal Analysis System TMA/SDTA 2+ from Mettler Toledo

The TMA/SDTA 2+ incorporates Swiss precision mechanics and is available in four versions with furnace systems optimized for measurements between −150 and 1600 °C.

Precise determination of coefficients of thermal expansion (CTEs) and transitions

The Thermal Analysis System TMA/SDTA 2+ from Mettler Toledo can be utilized for an extensive range of applications, thanks to its wide temperature range and the extensive choice of force parameters in tension and compression modes.

Thus, the TMA/SDTA 2+ rapidly offers characteristic data on several kinds of samples, for instance, large sample cylinders, very thin layers, films, plates, fine fibers, single crystals, and hard or soft polymers.

Thermomechanical analysis (TMA) is the perfect addition to DSC. In addition to the quantification of expansion coefficients, TMA is also a perfect method for identifying glass transitions that cannot be sufficiently measured by DSC, for instance, materials with high filler content. The penetration mode is perfect for characterizing the glass transitions of complex samples like very thin coatings.

SDTA signal—unsurpassed temperature accuracy

The TMA/SDTA 2+ is the only commercially available instrument that can quantify the sample temperature extremely close to the sample in all operating modes. This allows temperature adjustment to be performed using reference substances (for example, the melting points of pure metals) or via a change in length.
