Metals & Alloys
Assess stability against corrosion. Determine phase diagrams, data for heat transfer simulation in metals-based systems. Understand powders sintering.
If you are involved in investigating the structure or reactivity of metals and alloys, we have the solution to help.
Oxidation & corrosion
The stability against corrosion and oxidation is an important criterion. You can study high temperature oxidation of metals and alloys using TGA. You can even simulate harsh conditions involving humidity, pressure, acidic vapors, etc.
Improvement of metal and alloy properties may come from a better control over their structure. For this you can benefit from phase diagrams. DTA or DSC directly measure characteristic temperatures of a phase diagram. Drop calorimetry, together with modelling, is an alternative indirect method.
You can make some metallic parts like those manufactured by 3D printing using powder sintering. During sintering, the dimensions of the part changes. You can use TMA to measure powder expansion, shrinkage, and the final part’s density.
A metals’ Coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) and heat capacity (Cp) are important technical specifications. It is especially true for heat transfer and mechanical stress simulation. You can use TMA and calorimetry to accurately measure these parameters.
Heat of Formation
Interested in the stability of complex alloys? You can benefit from thermodynamics measurement. Heat of formation measured by drop calorimetry helps predict the alloys’ reactivity. It is also used for phase diagrams calculation.
