Netzsch Instruments North America LLC (Burlington, MA, US) is featuring three products in its thermal analysis and thermophysical property measurement equipment line: DEA 288 Epsilon, DSC 214 Polyma, and DMA 242 Artemis. The DEA (dielectric analysis) is for monitoring the changes in viscosity and cure state of thermosets, adhesives, paints and coatings. The DSC (differential scanning calorimeter) is optimized for ease of use in composites analyses and quality control. It measures curing, melting, crystallization, and glass transition temperature. The DMA (dynamic mechanical analyzer) tests the viscoelastic properties of adhesives, rubbers, and composites. NETZSCH also offers process control instruments for in-situ cure monitoring.
