Thermal analysis is a powerful tool to be used in quality control
Quality Control by Thermal Analysis
Manufacturers of various industrial products have to respond to the growing demands for product quality and performance. Thermal analysis is being used as a method for monitoring the quality of both materials and manufacturing processes to achieve maximum product quality and productivity. TA techniques provide fast, accurate and reproducible results.
The five main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, DMA and Thermal Values are ideal for characterising such materials.
