One single analyzer for DMA, fatigue and curing tests

News International-French

6 Mar 2015

JEC Europe 2015 - DMA+300 is a instrument within the range of METRAVIB dynamic mechanical analyzers, the DMA+ series.

The new METRAVIB DMA+300 combines the capabilities of a dynamic testing machine, a tensile machine, a DMA and a rheometer.

It can perform:
• DMA tests: Tg determination, viscoelastic properties measurement, and their dependence to frequency, temperature, strain… for most polymer-based materials;
• fatigue tests of materials specimens and industrial components;
• curing follow-up for uncured thermoset polymers;
• crack growth tests on polymer films;
• tensile, compression, creep, and stress relaxation tests.

DMA+300 includes a 300-newton air-bearing electro-dynamic shaker, in the brand new DMA+ high-rigidity one-piece test frame. The benefit is a high ability to control thermo-mechanical test conditions with a high reliability over large analysis ranges: stiffness up to 7-decade variations, frequency from 0.00001 Hz up to 1 kHz, temperature from -150°C up to 500°C.

The instrument provides capabilities to analyse fine or wide variations of mechanical properties for materials such as fibre, polymers or polymerization of thermosetting polymer films.

DMA+300 is a powerful and versatile tool for research and R&D, particularly suitable for the analysis of mechanical properties of reinforced polymer materials and for life and performance prediction in the industry.
