Before assembling or delivering composite components, they will run through quality control. Due to its high sensitivity in identifying mechanical phase transitions like the glass-transition, dynamic-mechanical analysis (DMA) is the standard in post-process quality assurance. DMA can tell you if the resin cures in regions where differential scanning calorimetry struggles with the detection. This webinar will introduce the measurement principle of dynamic-mechanical analysis and show how to perform quality assurance in the composite sector. 

Primary Topics: 
- Measurement principle of DMA 
- What DMA can tell you about composite quality 
- How DMA fits in line with composite process control and material development
