Dilatometry (DIL) is a thermoanalytical technique for the measurement of expansion or shrinkage of a material when subjected to a controlled temperature/time program. The method is standardized and operates on bases such as DIN EN 821, DIN 51045, ASTM E 831 and ASTM E 228. Besides solid samples, powders, pastes and even liquids can be tested in special containers.

What Is The Discovery Laser Flash System Used For?
The Discovery Laser Flash System (DLF) provides Westmoreland Mechanical Testing & Research the capability of testing for thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity.
The DLF provides a high-performance laser flash analysis over a wide range of test temperatures. With high precision, quick response, non-contact measurement of the sample surfaces, Westmoreland Mechanical Testing & Research determines your material's ability to transfer and store heat.
What Is Dynamic Mechanical Analysis Used For?
Dynamic Mechanical Analysis measures the mechanical and viscoelastic properties of materials such as thermoplastics, thermosets, and elastomers by applying an oscillatory force in a set geometry. Customizable fixturing and furnace program for ceramic or metallic materials as well.
The DMA machine has a fluctuating temperature range as well as humidity control and fluid bath options for additional testing information for your materials.

What Is Thermomechanical Analysis Used For?
Westmoreland Mechanical Testing & Research provides Thermomechanical Analysis which studies the dimensional change of a material over a predefined temperature segment. A TMA applies a stress to a material and the resulting strain is measured while the material is subjected to a controlled temperature program.

What Is Differential Scanning Calorimetry Used For?
Another capability of our thermal analysis is Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The DSC measures energy changes in samples due to variations in their physical and chemical properties as a function of temperature or time.

What Is Thermogravimetry Used For?
Thermogravimetry, through the Thermal Gravimetric Analyzer (TGA) measures the change in weight of a sample as tested through a temperature profile. The TGA can provide information about chemical phenomena including chemisorptions, desolvation and dehydration, decomposition, and solid-gas reactions such as oxidation or reduction.
