The relationship between physical properties and temperature can be measured by thermal analysis techniques at program-controlled temperature. These technologies include differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential thermal analysis (DTA), derivative thermogravimetry (DTG), thermomechanical analysis (TMA), and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA).
Lifeasible has developed a comprehensive thermal analysis platform to provide services for the determination of the physical and chemical properties of inorganic, organic and polymeric materials. With the advanced apparatuses and technologies, the changes in crystal transformation, melting, sublimation, adsorption, dehydration, and decomposition can be measured accurately and efficiently.

DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimeter)
The DSC system is based on the heat flow principle, and is featured by a three-dimensional symmetrical construction with homogeneous heating. The calorimeter cell contains sensors with high calorimetric sensitivity and a condensation-free sample chamber, which guarantee high detection sensitivity, as well as highly stable and reproducible baselines over the entire life cycle of a calorimeter.
TGA (Thermal Gravimetric Analyzer)
TGA allows determination of temperature and weight changes of decomposition reactions, which often allows quantitative composition analysis, and can be used to determine water content or the residual solvents in a material. TGA also helps to identify plastics and organic materials by measuring the temperature of bond scissions in inert atmospheres, and to determine the purity of minerals, inorganic compounds, or organic materials.
TG - IR (TGA - FTIR Coupling)
TG – IR is a powerful analytical tool that combines the quantitative capabilities of TG and the qualitative capabilities of FTIR spectroscopy. TG-FTIR has been applied the detection of residues, analysis of additives, analysis of aging processes, characterization of natural and raw materials, desorption behavior, analysis of synthesis processes, analysis of decomposition processes, and so on.
DMA (Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer)
DMA is an analytical instrument that measures the physical properties, such as modulus and damping of solids and polymer melts. It is also programmable to measure force, stress, strain, frequency and temperature. DMA is also described as rheology of solids or Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMTA), when combining the information with temperature response.
TMA (Thermo Mechanical Analyzer)
TMA is a powerful tool for the measurement of dimensional or mechanical property changes of the sample while it is subjected to a temperature regime. TMA utilizes interchangeable probes at varied loads to deliver a number of measurements, including the softening temperature or glass transition temperature, tensile modulus, compression modulus, the thermal expansion, melting temperature, and crystalline phase transition temperature.
